This look at a long century of art making, understandably, more broad than it is deep. It's divided into sections on painting, sculpture, new media (performance art, video art, earth art, etc.), and photography, with a biographical appendix of all of the artists whose works are illustrated in the main sections of the book. The original German text, written by a team of writers and art historians, has been fluidly translated by John William Gabriel. There are more works from after World War II than before it, and many more German artists make the cut than if the book had been written by, say, an English or a French team. Art of the Twentieth Century is an unquestionably useful reference guide for the library of every art lover.
