An outstanding survey of 20th century art, this book introduces 75 influential artists, from Russian abstract pioneer Wassily Kandinsky and French colorist Henri Matisse to innovators Rachel Whiteread, Damien Hirst, and Olafur Eliasson at the turn of the 21st century. Each is given a concise profile and a career timeline from art educators Mark Getlein and Annabel Howard, offering insight into the artist's vision and what they were trying to accomplish, while acknowledging the lasting effect or impression of their work. Every entry is also illustrated with vivid reproductions of several key works—including at least one full page image—and a photo of the artist.
