Abstract:

This volume presents a survey of modern art. This term is usually associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation. Modern artists experiment with new ways of seeing and with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art. A tendency toward abstraction is characteristic of much modern art. This text traces the development of trends and influences in painting, sculpture, photography and architecture from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. Contemporary art is presented thematically rather than by decade, and various media are integrated. Consideration is given to globalization and the influence of modernism on non-Western and developing countries. Further learning is fostered by the book's bibliography, index, and glossary.
