In this collection of essays, the art critic, John Roberts, draws together studies of key post-war and contemporary artists. Written by art historians and artist-writers, these essays take a critical look at the construction of recent modern art history in both its traditional and radical forms. The artists discussed include Francis Picabia, Ad Reinhardt, Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, Jasper Johns, Anselm Keifer, Mary Kelly, Cindy Sherman, Victor Burgin and Laurie Anderson. This book provides an overview of art since 1945 and a guide to the debates it has engendered. At the same time, it aims to reassert the value of critical art history as an antidote to the vagaries of fashion and self-promotion that mark much writing on art today.
