The fourth and final installment in Irving Sandler's series on contemporary art, Art of the Postmodern Era surveys the artists, works, movements, and ideas as well as the social and cultural context of this energetic and turbulent period in art.The book begins with the late 1960s, when new directions in art emerged, ranging from diverse postminimal styles to pattern and decoration painting and new image painting. In turn, the 1980s ushered in a second wave of new movements—neoexpressionism, media deconstruction, and commodity art. Sandler also discusses postmodernist art theory, the art market, and consumer society, providing an essential framework for understanding the art of this period.Unlike his previous books, Art of the Postmodern Era includes both American and European artists.

About the Author:

Irving Sandler, professor of art history at the State University of New York at Purchase, was born in New York City and educated in Philadelphia. He is the author of a multivolume history of American art since 1945, books on Alex Katz, Al Held, Mark di Suvero, and numerous exhibition catalogs, articles, and reviews.

From Library Journal:

A luminary critic, Sandler (art history SUNY, Purchase) specializes in American art from Abstract Expressionism onward. His lengthy but informative new book charts the tremendous diversity of the counterculture decades, defining both the myriad art movements and the fascinating ups and downs of squabbling theoreticians. In this final volume in a series on contemporary art (e.g., The New York School, LJ 9/1/78), Sandler covers everything from specific defined movements to changes in markets. New Image Painting, Bad Art, Deconstruction Art, Commodity Art, Neo-Geo, and even so-called "pathetic art" are called on, as well as the better-known Feminist Art, Pattern Painting, and so on. This major survey is lucid, sympathetic, exhaustive, and generally objective, whether speaking of political correctness, money and fashion, or explicit sexual taboos as art. Endnotes are lengthy and important. Highly recommended.?Mary Hamel-Schwulst, Towson State Univ., Md.
