The Shock of the New

"The shock of the New combines style, wit, pertinent anecdote, critical poise and scholarship to provide an exhilarating history of a century of art that has puzzled, threatened and outraged its detractors - and captivated its admirers. Robert Hughes has written a major new chapter which not only brings us into the present with the story of the art that was modern, but confronts that art with a powerful challenge for its future."--BOOK COVER.
