Summary
"Providing broad coverage of painting, sculpture, and graphic art, the dictionary has entries on more than a thousand artists and on all the major movements and styles of the twentieth century, including Cubism, Dada, Surrealism, Art Deco, Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, Body and Performance art, and Neo-Expressionism." "In addition there are entries on art schools and galleries, exhibitions and prizes, terms and techniques. Although the dictionary concentrates on the great names, it is not confined to the mainstream of modern art, featuring many artists working in a more popular tradition, such as Vladimir Tretchikoff, the 'King of Kitsch', and interesting peripheral figures such as the forger Elmyr de Hory and the model Kiki of Montparnasse. The biographies also cover collectors, critics, dealers, and patrons."--Jacket
