I saw this book in a museum the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA and had the chance to peruse the museum’s copy which was of the previous edition before buying it. After just spending minutes with it in the museum, I became convinced that it was worth the hefty price. Now, having purchased the most recent edition, I am glad I did. It is an expensive book, but worth the price, in my opinion, as it contains a wealth of information and a wealth of art.

The book was originally written by H. Arnason, who, as the book’s Preface explains, was Professor and Chairman of the University of Minnesota’s Art Department from to He also held other posts and was affiliated with the Guggenheim Museum.

Since Arnason passed away some time ago, recent editions of the book have been updated by Elizabeth C. Mansfield Associate Professor of Art at NYUwho has brought the book up to the present as recent as with sections on globalization and postcolonial theory.

Both Arnason and Mansfield are clearly intelligent scholars who place the art within its historical context to help us to see what it did, where the innovations were, and what conflicts and issues were live at that time. For example, the opening chapter deals with the legal case between Ruskin and Whistler, in which Whistler sued Ruskin for libel when Ruskin defamed Whistler’s painting “Nocturne in Black and Gold. The his story is told in a very readable way, with the painting shown, and it is a perfect and intelligent way to open the book, since a crucial issue involved in modern art is, what makes it art and who decides?

I have not had time to work my way through the whole book it is pagesbut I have liked very much what I have read so far. The index is handy for finding the artists one is interested in, if you don’t want to wade through the book, since the chapters are organized thematically.

The book may be intended for College textbook use, but I think it is definitely interesting enough to be read by anyone interested in art and painting. It’s probably a bit too large and intimidating to work well as a real “introductory” book for someone who knows arnasonn about art or modern art unless you have a seriously scholarly mindbut otherwise, I think it is as accessible as it can be given its size and scope, it makes for some great reading and it also passes as a good reference work.


Arnason goes into great detail for each art genre that existed during the 20th and now 21st century. It is a more engaging and explanative art history book than many mpdern I have encountered. She writes in a fashion xrt is completely understandable yet very intelligent, rather than the strictly scholarly speak I have found in other volumes. One person found this helpful. Nice overview arhason modern art.

It’s what I wanted. The particular copy I got was in good condition for an excellent price. This is a pretty amazing treatment of the arts including photography and architecture from the late 19th century though the moderj to the early years of this century. It’s not an easy read although well worth it. In addition to treatments of various works of art and artists the authors discuss their role inn the society of the time histor in the larger scope of art.

Needed it for a class and it was helpful. Great book, but absurdly heavy. I guess that’s the tradeoff for a durable book. Bought for class, but really easy to read and love the photos.
