Synopsis: Art isn't just for the Louvre and the Cistine chapel! Throughout the twentieth century, the art world exploded with new ideas, movements and artists were keen to express themselves in new and exciting ways. The last one hundred years have seen the classic masters, distinctive icons and rebels who break existing rules and influence new ones. "Little Black Book: Art" covers the key moments of twentieth century art, from iconic to the lesser-known, the movements, events and influencing ideologies, to beautiful and controversial pieces and exhibitions that uncovered new talent. Whether you're a master with materials and light or you have difficulty in telling your paints from your pencils, Little Black Book: Art is an accessible and informative guide that charts the best and most significant events of the ever-changing art world.

About the Author: Mike Evans is a freelance writer, editor and editorial consultant. In 1984 he curated the 'Art of the Beatles' exhibition at Liverpool's Walker Art Gallery, which he subsequently organised in galleries in Tokyo and Cologne and wrote a much-acclaimed book on the subject. In book publishing he has commissioned popular reference books on art, music, cinema and fashion, including Key Moments in Architecture, Key Moments in Fashion, 'culture guides' to the arts in New York, Paris, Dublin and London, and an Art of... series which included Japanese Prints, Medieval Manuscripts, and the traditional art of India, Mesoamerica and elsewhere. As author his books include Waking Up in New York City, The Making of 'Raging Bull', a biography of Ray Charles, and in 2007 The Beats, an account of the literature and art of the 1950s Beat Generation. A long-standing member of the Chelsea Arts Club, he lives and works in London.
