Review: Art Since 1940: Strategies of Being

User Review  - Alexis - Goodreads

Basic introductory text to contemporary art history. Broad coverage of both established artists (Richard Sera, Christo and Jean-Claude, deKooning) but also of lesser known pockets and art communities (Bay Area figuration). Enjoyable as far as introductory texts go! Read full review
