This sumptuously illustrated book provides a comprehensive introduction to one of the most revolutionary periods in art. With 400 stunning images Modern Art 1900-1945 represents an important document of 20th century art.

The first half of the 20th century saw perhaps the greatest change in the visual arts and set the tone for the rest of the century. From Art Nouveau to Cubism, Surrealism the stark lines of the Bauhaus buildings, this book documents this revolution in painting, building, photography and cinema to give an overview of the extraordinary creativity of this particular period.

Many major themes and movements are explored to allow a better understanding of the influences which guided these artists into creating so many different, yet equally significant, styles of art.
