This is a concise and immensely useful guide to artists, art movements and groups of this century. The artists included—painters, sculptors and graphic artists—range from those working in the late nineteenth century whose work is of seminal importance to subsequent development (e.g. van Gogh, Seurat, Toulouse-Lautrec), through the great painters of the School of Paris—Braque, Picasso, Modigliani, Gris, Chagall—up to the current stars in the avant-garde firmament —Oldenburg, Dine, Bacon, Hockney, Klein, Lichtenstein, Riley, Vasarely, Warhol. Not only artists who fit into the broad pattern of development are represented, but also many others whose work has some recognized or potential aesthetic value, so that new, younger artists find a place in this dictionary beside their more established colleagues.
