What are you looking at? 150 Years of Modern Art

20,90  VAT included

Art lovers, skeptics and bewildered: this modern art story is for you. What is modern art? Why is it loved or hated? And why is it always so outrageously expensive? Will Gompertz, Art Director of the BBC, former director of the Tate Gallery in London and one of the world's leading experts, has written a dazzling guide that will forever change the way we look at contemporary art. From Monet's water lilies to Van Gogh's sunflowers, Warhol's soup cans and Hirst's formaldehyde sharks, this book reveals the story behind the works, the people behind the artists, and the true magic that modern art hides.

Aimed at both skeptics and convinced, What are you looking at? it solves all the questions we always ask ourselves and never dare to ask. In a surprising journey through the last 150 years of art peppered with revealing anecdotes, Gompertz explains what the genius of Pollock or Cézanne consists of, how a urinal changed the course of history or why our five-year-old nephew really did not. would do the same. Original, irreverent and highly accessible, this book breaks myths and prejudices and will make our next museum visit less intimidating and much more exciting.
