Title How to look at modern art




Description / Abstract This book is a great introduction to the wonderful, mysterious, confusing, rebellious and exciting world of modern art. The author does a great job breaking apart the process of looking at art, and more importantly, making sense and giving personal meaning to what seems to be incomprehensible works. The language used is accessible and encourages the reader to go out and look at the "real thing".
