Modern art arouses many different responses: suspicion, controversy and misunderstanding are among the most frequent. But it doesn't need to be like that. To help out, here is a clear, accessible, fully illustrated introduction to what can otherwise seem a daunting subject. Covering everything from Impressionism to the Harlem Renaissance, from Cezanne to Postmodernism in clearly laid-out sections illustrated in full colour, this book answers the need for a thorough yet manageable guide to art in the modern world. With the authority of the world's most popular gallery of modern art, combined with clear text and superb illustrations, this book presents everything you need for a basic grounding in the subject.
With sections that cover the major movements and artists in the history of modern art as well as introductions to its major themes, together with suggested ways of looking at modern art and tips on where to see it - as well as a glossary of key terms - How to Survive Modern Art is the ideal book for anyone wanting to get to grips with this fascinating subject.
Susie Hodge MA, FRSA has written numerous titles on art history and practical art, and has many years' experience teaching art history and design.
