This richly developed thematic and chronological survey includes comprehensive text by Ades, providing historical context and descriptions of major aesthetic trends along with scholarly essays by critic and curator Guy Brett and art historian Caitlin Loomis Stanton. Generously illustrated with color and black-and-white plates; with extensive notes, appendix, brief biographies of the featured artists, and a select bibliography.
