About the Authors
  • The twentieth century has seen great and rapid changes in society and in art. Artists have challenged all the traditional ways of seeing and depicting the world. They have grouped together in a bewildering series of movements, or followed individual and sometimes baffling preoccupations. In Rosemary Lambert's The Twentieth Century, the art lover is helped through the maze. Key works from Cubism and Fauvism to Pop Art and Photo Realism, from Picasso and Braque to the Bauhaus and beyond, are explored in non-technical language. The reader is conveyed by the author's own enthusiasm towards the discovery of many fascinating parallels in the painting, sculpture and architecture of this century.
