English.Subject(s): Art, Modern -- 20th century -- History | Visual arts, ca 1905-1980Summary: "The author as noted in the introduction has in the first part of the book 'treated one of the major explosions of creative forces in the visual sector' by grouping Futurism, Cubism, Surrealism, Constructivism, and Expressionism. His treatment of the years after World War 11 in the second part of the book is no less effective. The discussions of the movements of Pop Art, Op Art, 'Tachisme' or Abstract Expressionsim, Minimal Art, Body Art, Conceptualism, and Superrealism - to which Lucie-Smith dedicates his most impressive chapters - constitute an intellectual and creative adventure which provocatively expands the confines of art - however it can be defined - into unexplored territory."--BOOK JACKET.
