The history of twentieth-century visual arts can no longer be written as a succession of avant-garde movements, contends eminent art historian Bernard Smith in this stimulating book. He argues that a return to the concept of period stlye is inevitable and that modernism - the dominint 'style' of art that emerged at the end of the nineteenth century and continued throughout the 1960s - deserves recognition as a period style.
