Do you often find yourself scratching your head while looking at Modern or Contemporary Art? This is a great guide to the art movements over the last 150 years starting with Pre-Impressionism. Will Gompertz, former director of the Tate Gallery in London, does a fantastic job of bringing art to life. He describes the inspirations, reactions and attitudes surrounding the Modern & Contemporary Art. This is not a dull list of names and dates but an engaging web of stories behind some most beautiful and most confusing Art in the History of Art.
