Description

A striking, design-led reference book, A-Z Great Modern Artists features Andy Tuohy's portraits of 52 key modern artists, rendered in each artist's own characteristic style - including Aleksandr Rodchenko in trademark green and red, Andy Warhol as a classic repeated print, and Marc Quinn as a frozen blood head in a box. With text by art historian Christopher Masters, each artist's entry will also have a summary of the essential things you need to know about the artist; their biographical details, why they're so significant, where you can find their works today, and a surprising fact or two about them as well as reproductions of key works. Whether you're already an art expert, or looking for a helpful cheat to navigating around a gallery, you'll love this guide to global artists of the modern age.
