"Contemporary art can be baffling and beautiful, provocative and disturbing. This book presents a new look at the controversial period between 1945 and 2000, when art and its traditional forms were called into question. It focuses on the relationship between American and European art, and challenges previously held views about the origins of some of the most innovative ideas in art of this time."--BOOK JACKET.
