How much visual beauty can you stand from one book? Be ready to be overwhelmed by the creativity shown by artists of the late twentieth century. Cindy Sherman (page 288) alone is worth the price. Or Gary Hume (page 140). John Currin, a dutch master reincarnated into the last century. Not heard of them yet? Maybe you will, someday. Get ahead of the curve.
This volume offers updated biographical information on 137 influential artists. It includes a section produced in collaboration with The Art Newspaper which lists museums, restaurants and hotels, and even gives the scoop on how much one can expect to pay for a Damien Hurst or a Sharon Lockhart.
