The complex themes and characteristics of modern art can intimidate and baffle the casual observer. In this accessible, practical guide, Jon Thompson explores more than 200 works, helping readers to unlock each painting’s meaning. Beginning with the Barbizon school and the Realist movement of the mid-19th century and continuing right up to the 1980s avant-garde, he analyses works by some of the greatest and most popular artists of the modern era, including Bonnard, Van Gogh, Picasso, Pollock, Rauschenberg, Warhol and Basquiat, describing each artist’s use of media and symbolism, and providing useful biographical information.
