The Modern World
Hardback coffee table book featuring landmarks of the world's art, by Norbert Lynton, published in 1965. 175 pages.
"This book explains exactly what words like 'romanticism', 'post-impressionism', 'symbolism', 'cubism', 'surrealism', 'abstract expressionism' or 'pop art' really mean. It shows clearly how an artist's experiments or the work of a group lead to exciting new developments which are quickly taken up by others. Like the pieces of a kaleidoscope, the bewildering mass of names, movements and technical terms fall into recognisable patterns."
