Editorial reviews

When it first appeared Robert Hughes's book was hailed as 'probably the best introduction to modern art available to the general reader', and the years that followed have established it as a classic. This edition brings us into the 1990s and confronts art with a powerful challenge for its future. It combines style and wit, anecdote and scholarship to encourage you to look at art with new eyes.
