  • " like an introduction to a foreign country -- with its own history, periods, and culture. Like a tour guide pointing out the highlights of a previously unknown city, Phillips takes us through the major and minor movements in art, contextualizing them into a history that runs from the early 19th century to today." ~Huffington Post

    "Packed with graphically accessible information this book introduces important movements in modern art in a concise and accessible format. It also creates a context for understanding the relationships between key trends in modern art. This publication is well-suited for the art enthusiast and would make an ideal travel companion for gallery or museum visits." ~Arles Na
