I have many books on art at home, many of which are about specific artists and styles, but what I do lack is a book more along the lines of an encyclopedia - this is that book! The book was originally published in 1974, but that doesn't take anything away from the book to be honest, and publishing the book now in hardback form adds to the book. The book contains 8 chapters from Impressionism through to Pluralism since 1960, and the book contains many images of some of the worlds leading artists work. I've found the book to be an enjoyable read, and it's well worth the asking price for it!

Encyclopedias are losing out to on-line sources that enquirers can use to suit the specific level of their needs. Nevertheless, a compact and comprehensive `concise and authoritative introduction to every major development in the visual arts in the last one hundred years - from Impressionism to Post-Modernism' would be a useful resource. My edition is from 1990.

The presentation is very good, with clearly defined paragraphs and a broad inside margin that removes any feeling of a dry academic tome. The colour reproductions, 414 in all, are of variable sizes but all make it easy to understand and appreciate the specific point/s being made in the text. There are also many b/w illustrations.

The book is set out in chapters that are devoted to specific -isms, `Impressionism', written by Bernard Denvir; `Symbolism and Art Nouveau', Alastair Mackintosh; `Fauvism and Expressionism', Denvir; `'Cubism, Futurism and Constructivism', J. M. Dash; `Dada and Surrealism', Dawn Ades; `Abstract Expressionism', Anthony Everitt; `Pop', Simon Wilson and `Pluralism since 1960', Livingstone. There are also Chronologies and Select Bibliographies, List of Illustrations (presented alphabetically according to the artist and covering colour and b/w illustrations) and an Index; these latter sections are printed in very small print although the contrast between the print and the page is good.

It is always easy to identify topics that are not covered well or, indeed, at all. However, there is nothing about Socialist Realist Art, Degenerate Art, Group of Seven or the Ash Can School, consideration of Impressionism is limited to artists in France and, with the exception of the Abstract Expressionists, American art is not considered.

If you are just starting to explore modern art (as I am) I dont think this quite fits the bill.. Some descriptions in the book do not have an accompanying picture so you have no idea what they are talking about at times. It assumes you have a background knowledge already. Lots of good illustrations though. I'm finding it interesting but quite intense
