Widely praised when it first appeared in 1995, Art Since 1940 tells the story of six decades of art in America and Europe through a series of in-depth biographical profiles of individual artists, astutely linked by illuminating discussions of the cultural influences on their work. ARTnews hailed this lively volume as "a fascinating book" by "a superb critic and art historian". For this Second Edition, the author adds a new final chapter and extensively reworks the last quarter of the hook to incorporate current thinking on the art of the last 20 years.

Review: Art Since 1940: Strategies of Being

User Review  - Ron - Goodreads

A fine book on 20th century art. From Calder to Christo, from pop art to minimalists. Why is it that..... "Less than 5% of the artists in the modern art sections are women, but 85% of the nudes are female" Read full review
