Lives of the Great Modern Artists

(0)Review Product

In the era of celebrity culture, we are now more fascinated than ever with the lives of our leading artists. Creative personalities are always intriguing, and to learn something new about the greatest artists of the 20th and 21st centuries be they eccentric or sober, outspoken or reclusive is compelling.

Presented in Lives of the Great Modern Artists are some of the most engaging life stories of our time, eventful, intimate and poignant. Lively short biographies, clearly grouped according to style and era, are illustrated with important works, self-portraits and photographs. Lucie-Smith vividly evokes the lives of these great personalities, from Picasso and Duchamp to Joseph Beuys and Louise Bourgeois, guiding the reader through the maze of different styles and movements with authority and verve.

New entries on rising stars such as Marlene Dumas, Shirin Neshat and Zhang Xiaogang extend the scope of Lives of the Great Modern Artists to reach from 1900 to today.
