Summary
"As witnessed by the spectacular success of Tate Modern and the newly reopened Museum of Modern Art in New York, public interest in modern art continues to grow. At the same time, there is much bewilderment about the works of art themselves, and about the term 'modern'." "Highlighting the issue of controversy in modern art, from Manet's Dejeuner sur L'Herbe to Tracey Emin's Bed, David Cottington's Very Short Introduction offers readers not only insight into the key ideas about modern art, but also explains its contemporary relevance and history."--BOOK JACKET
