The 20th century not only debated, questioned and rejected the concept of art, but also defined and redefined it over and over, testing the possibilities. It was the century of questions and inventions, of recluses and attention-getters. The studio became a laboratory. This book is the first to attempt on such a scale to steer a way through the multitudinous shoals of styles, fashions and movements. It covers not only painting, sculpture and related artefacts but also the new media, photography, and the multi-facetted interrelations between the various disciplines. With its sheer range of coverage, up-to-date perspective and copious illustrations, this book is a must for every art lover.
