subtitle: The Surprising, Shocking, and Sometimes Strange Story of 150 Years of Modern Art

I don’t understand modern art. And the books I’ve read tend to throw up their hands when discussing modern art which since modern art has been going on for a while is a punt while giving off a negative attitude. Gompertz provides an overview of art movements, says that he likes modern art and provides examples of modern art he thinks is great while explaining why he thinks it is great. Thanks, your book was a big help.
