Art in Time is the first book to embed art movements within the larger context of politics and history. Global in scope and featuring an innovative present‐to‐past arrangement, the book’s accessible text looks back on the most significant art styles and movements, from the present day to antiquity. Pages of historical photographs, documents, newspaper headlines, and other ephemera evoke the times in which styles and movements arose. The book opens with The Information Age (Internet Art, Neo‐Expressionaism, Arte Povera) and closes with The Classical Age (Roman wall painting, Hellenistic Greek style), covering everything from Photorealism, Art Brut, Ukiyo‐e, and Byzantine style in between. An integrated timeline provides a linear thread throughout the book, while succinct, authoritative text illuminates key points.

Editorial Reviews

" "Like Theseus’s string guiding him the Minotaur’s labyrinth, Art in Time leads the reader through the most important styles, schools and movements from art history, and how each movement built upon its predecessor. Understand how the disobediences of the day impacted on the world of art." – Vanity Fair "Beautifully produced. . . An absorbing and enlightening gallop through art. The careful balance of digestible chunks of information with beautiful images makes this equally rewarding as a dip–into coffee table book or a cover‐to‐cover read." – Royal Academy of Arts Magazine "
