The Art Museum in Modern Times

The Art Museum in Modern Times


Having been at the helm of three major art institutions, Charles Saumarez Smith uses his wealth of knowledge and experience to delve into how museums across the world have changed over the past century.

His investigation mirrors a tourism guidebook with Smith travelling to 42 institutions around the world, like the Museum of Modern Art in New York and West Bund Museum in Shanghai, to see how they've been influenced by architecture, funding or vision.

It is illustrated with over 100 detailed images including early sketches and photographs, many of which Smith took himself.
