A handbook to Twentieth Century Historic Avant-gardes. Excellent texts and winning graphics at an affordable price. Particularly suitable for younger readers
In the wake of the editorial success of Arte contemporanea, Electa offers another handbook to learn about Twentieth Century Historic Avant-gardes. Despite dealing with a well-known subject, about which a rich bibliography already exists, this book offers a different perspective and is dedicated chiefly to curious minds and students who need a brief analysis of this artistic period.
Each author of this volume proposes a personal view, as it is made clear by the accurate but never ordinary iconographic choices.
The book is organized chronologically embracing all the artistic movements of the first half of the Twentieth Century, from Post-Impressionism to Informal Art, as a sort of ideal prosecution of Arte Contemporanea. The final chapter is dedicated to developments in photography. To guarantee the book a high quality, texts have been assigned to authors coming from the academic world
