This book is a world survey of the visual arts from the 1960s to the present, a period of extraordinary richness, and also of controversy and confusion. With a critical eye and a historian’s insight into wider trends, Edward Lucie-Smith provides an authoritative guide to this unstable world. Clear, accurate and informative, he charts the progress of contemporary developments and traces their sources and interrelationships.
Since its first publication in 1995, Art Today has become recognized as an indispensable introduction to contemporary art. It is now reissued as a paperback, at a price that will make it affordable to students and all who seek orientation in this exciting but complex field.
