This book is designed with the O.U 3rd level(equivalent of final year undergraduate)course A316. But if you have ever wanted to study art, but don't want to commit yourself THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU. It covers some interesting and important artists from the mid 19th C onwards, and is a good way of introducing some of the more theoretical writings about modern art. However it is woefully short of British art, as are the three companion books, and being a francophile will help you lots.
