about

The 20th century has witnessed an explosion of diverse art movements, styles, and schools, with contemporary artists breaking traditional boundaries again and again. In more than 350 essays, the most popular and influential styles and movements are examined alongside recent experiments in newmedia--video art, land art, and computer art. The origins and artistic aims of such intriguing movements as the Donkey's Tail, the Kitchen Sink school, and the Stupid group are also fully covered. This is an ideal way to explore both the major and minor artistic movements of the last hundred years. The Grove Art series, focusing on the most important periods and areas of art history, is derived from the critically acclaimed and award-winning The Grove Dictionary of Art. First published in 1996 in 34 volumes, The Dictionary has quickly established itself as the leading reference work on thevisual arts, used by schools, universities, museums, and public libraries throughout the world. With articles written by leading scholars in each field, The Dictionary has frequently been praised for its breadth of coverage, accuracy, authority, and accessibility.
Jane Turner was General Editor of The Grove Dictionary of Art.
