9780500203446: Movements in Art Since 1945 (World of Art)

This classic account of the history of the visual arts from the end of World War II to the new millennium has now been completely rewritten, revised, expanded, and updated.

The fifth edition reflects the latest developments in a wide-ranging introduction and nine new chapters that deal with the radical transformations that have taken place in contemporary art. Among the topics covered are the increasing dominance of photography, film, and video, and the emergence of a new post-Post-Expressionist group of "Abject" artists whose work stresses feelings of alienation in Western industrial societies, often through the reintroduction of narrative. The emergence of an opposing trend of idealizing classicism, particularly in Italy and Russia, is discussed, and there is increased coverage of the burgeoning practice of art "on the periphery" in Third World countries, where artists have absorbed Western modernism and then created new terms of reference for artistic expression adapted to their own cultures. Numerous additional reproductions illustrate all the recent developments in this completely redesigned edition, and there are a full bibliography and comprehensive chronologies of key events. No other account of the art of the last fifty-five years provides as much up-to-date information about art issues, developments, and players. 100 color and 190 black & white

Review:

Wide-ranging, dispassionate, omnicompetent.

Book Description Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. To reflect the latest developments, in this fifth edition nearly half the book has been rewritten including a wide-ranging introductory chapter and seven new chapters that deal with the latest radical transformations in contemporary art, among them the increasing dominance of the photographic media, film and video, and the emergence of a new post-Post-Expressionist group of Abject artists whose work stresses feelings of alienation in developed Western industrial societies dominated by the collapse of traditional values, often through the reintroduction of narrative. It also discusses the emergence of an opposing trend of idealizing classicism, particularly in Italy and Russia. The treatment of the burgeoning practice of different forms of contemporary art on the periphery in Third World countries, where artists have absorbed Western modernism but have then created new terms of reference for artistic expression adapted to their own cultures, has also been further elaborated, with examples from new regions.
