    1. This is THE book of books of modern art Any self respecting art lover, critic and artist should have it It s a huge book worth reading and revisiting over and over again.It s one of the most valuable books I own Not because it s expensive, but because the knowledge it provides is phenomenal

    2. Takes the po mo leftist party line to the point of overbearance, but a solid guide to the major figures and movements of the past century.

    3. A friend of mine who is an art history professor recently recommended this one as the best guide to modern art Now, I do despise nearly all modern art, but back when I was in college I did enjoy reading Art News the way some people enjoy watching horror movies No he s not going to pick up the hitchhiker with the crazy eyes, is he HE DID No he s not going to pay 12 million for a shark some dude poured formaldehyde over, is he HE DID

    4. I pity the unfortunate student who is assigned this textbook for class The writing in this book is anti student, as if they were not stressed out enough.

    5. Not exactly light reading, this panoply of scholarly texts is divided into two major time periods, 20th century pre and post war, with roundtable discussions after each by the authors, and is bookended by a superb introduction and a very selective glossary It s not exactly a narrative non fiction either, as one can easily move around to whichever chapter suits their fancy and the readings are theoretically driven, but it was great to read cover to cover this view of art history Having done so, I [...]

    6. Students of art history must have this book It contains great reference material, is a great starting point for paper topics, has great summaries of famous people, is simply a beautiful book with beautiful illustrations and interesting writing though I could do without the slightly masturbatory roundtable transcript A very well done pile of art historical puzzle pieces rather than an attempt at rigid chronology, this enjoyable if often biased postmodernist agenda driven book should not be one s [...]

    7. a solid overview, for sure i appreciate the aesthetics of the layout, it s a beautiful series i have some qualms with the chronological structure and the theoretical camps of the authors themselves, but still worthwhile.

    8. I m absolutely obsessed with this book Anyone with a love for modern art should purchase it It s well organized and get be read at a leisurely pace Beautiful images, insightful commentary I would definitely recommend the two volume format.

    9. I ve been reading this for over a year I have now gotten to the 1970s w Haacke, Broodthaers, et al It has a glossary which is exceptionally useful.

    10. most of my last yr has been reading this book excellent, skewed, and trendy what any contemporary art history book should be.
