A witty narrative everyman's history of modern art from the BBC Arts Editor and former Director at the Tate Gallery. Written in a style reminiscent of Bill Bryson and John O'Farrell, this is a refreshing, irreverent but deeply informative survey. It also includes a free pull-out map of Modern Art, to further illuminate any gallery visit.
What is modern art? Why do we either love it or loathe it? And why is it worth so much damn money? This title deals with these questions. It is suitable for sceptics, art lovers, and the millions of us who visit art galleries every year - and are confused.
