schema:description"This volume combines social scientific methods with qualitative analysis to produce an interpretation of modern art. The art of the twentieth century broke completely with earlier artistic traditions. A basic change in the market for advanced art produced a heightened demand for innovation, and young conceptual innovators -- from Picasso and Duchamp to Rauschenberg and Warhol to Cindy Sherman and Damien Hirst -- responded not only by creating dozens of new forms of art, but also by behaving in ways that would have been incomprehensible to their predecessors. The author concludes that contemporary art is the logical result of conceptual innovators operating in a competitive market that has consistently rewarded radical and conspicuous innovation."
