A century and a half of masterpieces is covered in this chronologically arranged volume that captures the development of art in a new age. Starting with James Abbott McNeill Whistler and ending with Matthew Barney, nearly every prominent figure in Modern art is represented in double-page spreads that show how these artists continued to redefine norms and challenge tradition. Biographical and anecdotal information about each artist is provided alongside large reproductions of their most celebrated works, stunning details, and images of the artists themselves. A color-coded timeline spans the entire volume, showing overlapping careers and important historical dates. --from publisher description.
