50 ART MOVEMENTS YOU SHOULD KNOW: FROM IMPRESSIONISM TO PERFORMANCE ART. Rosalind Ormiston. Prestel-Verlag, Munich, 2014. 140 pp. with 63 ills. (60 col.). 25 x 20 cm. LC 2014-930621 ISBN 9783791348803 In English.
Publisher's description: The story of modern art begins with a revolution--when the realists started rejecting romanticism in favor of depicting life as it really was. Since that movement began in the mid 19th century, painters have been rebelling, rethinking, deconstructing, and challenging notions of what art is. Filled with stunning reproductions of some of the world's greatest masterpieces, this reference book offers a chronological journey through artistic revolutions. Each movement is presented in a series of informative presentations--a concise definition and description; fullpage and smaller detailed color illustrations; and indepth profiles of the artists crucial to the style's development. Covering a wide range of movements both familiar and obscure, this accessible and informative volume is a perfect introduction for readers interested in art's constantly evolving story.
