"...here is a magnificent account -- authoritative, lively, richly and beautifully illustrated -- of the hundred-year history of modern art...it recounts the origins of modern painting, sculpture, and architecture; discusses the careers of the major artists; shows how their work was shaped by the cataclysmic events of the new century; makes plain why modernism has today very nearly run its course -- and does all this with verve, command of anecdote and scholarship, and a critical poise that is nothing short of dazzling." --P. [2] of cover.
