Art history book of the week

Modern Art 1851-1929 by Richard R. Brettell
A period marked by significant historical, social and economic events, among them World War I, saw at the same time a radical change in art and artistic creation. The road from Realism to Surrealism seems very long; less than 100 years however were needed for the artists to pass from the first to the latter and a great number of styles evolved during this same time. This book aims at throwing light to most of them looking at the same time at the social context that gave rise to them.
