Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312229763, Paperback)This century has witnessed an explosion in the number of art movements and schools that have emerged and contemporary artists breaking traditional boundaries. In more than 350 essays, the most popular movements-Surrealism, Expressionism, and Pop Art--are discussed alongside recent experiments in new media like video art, and environmetal art. This volume is an ideal way to explore the artistic movements of the 20th-century and to discover the origins and aims of such intriguing movements as the Donkey's Tail, and the Stupid School.
This unprecedented book draws together biographies of artists who worked in one of the most exciting and dramatic political eras in France, when Paris became the artistic capital of Europe. It features in-depth studies of such well-known Neo-classical artists as Jacques-Louis David, and Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, the artist most revered by his fellow countrymen. Also included are artists of the Romantic Movement, like Delacroix and Gericault, as well as the painters of the Barbizon School, whose plein-air landscapes anticipated those of the Impressionists.
