Art in Time is an up-to-date guide to some 150 of art's most important and influential styles, schools and movements, spanning not just the Western traditions, but also styles from India, China, Japan, Latin America and Africa. In a unique present-to-past format, Art in Time illustrates how the present continually informs the past - how artists look back and re-interpret that which came before. Each style or movement is examined in the social and political context in which it arose. Historical photographs and documentary ephemera bring each period to life. A preface, comprehensive glossary and index make this a complete resource for anyone curious about how art became what it is today.
