Colin on
This book, and the accompanying TV series, were my first encounter with Robert Hughes and his style of art criticism. This book essentially covers the 20th century, and does so with wonderful insight and wit as well. All the major movements are covered (and a few minor offshoots as well), and what makes the book even better are the several hundred colour reproductions of art works. One of the best books od art history and criticism that I have ever read. A classic.
