From Publishers Weekly
The author of The Fatal Shore and Time magazine's art critic here presents a greatly expanded version of a PBS television series on modern art, and includes some 270 color illustrations. Although he frequently deals in generalities, "choice anecdotes, telling characterizations, witty observations flow from his pen," lauded PW . The "chapters bristle with apt insights."

this is a great addition to any artist's library, and invaluable for art history classes.
It is in great 'used' condition; I did not want to pay the price for a new one.
Thanks, amazon, for making it available to me.
The art work in this book is what I will be seeing when I go to Paris & London next month!
Something to consult occasionally rather than to read through.
Just what I wanted.
