Modern Art free pdf For one-semester/quarter, freshman/junior-level courses in Modern Art, Contemporary Art, 20th-Century Art. Richly illustrated and clearly focused, this text surveys the genesis, development, and culmination of modern European/American painting, sculpture, architecture, and conceptual art--from Post-Impressionism through the most recent developments in the 1990s. Organized along chronological lines, it explores the ideas, forms, events, artists, and works--with each chapter devoted to a style, movement, or decade--from Cezanne, Seurat, Gauguin, and Van Gogh through Minimalism and the general reaction known as Post-Modernism. Ideal for students with a general interest in art, it avoids the typical encyclopedic approach of surveys in favor of examining selected but highly representative works in greater depth and from an enlarged spectrum of critical discourse.
