I reviewed it and several other contemporary art books after this was suggested by my department chair who highly recommended it.

He was so right! The writing style is clear and approachable, enjoyable to read, informative without being dry. I highly recommend it as a textbook for a contemporary art course or to read for pleasure if you enjoy art. I would like to point out a few important things about this book that have proven valuable.

Art & Today by Eleanor Heartney

First, at the beginning of each chapter the is a brief but detailed and sensible history of the topic about to be discussed which helps gain a sense of context surrounding the issue at hand. Second, the images are of great quality and clarity. Fantastic Book, I used in for a University College course, and it came in excellent condition.

The book itself is full color and even though I already graduated, It has made an excellent collection as a coffee table book for my guests when I have people over! This book has most of the oft-referenced contemporary works you need to know about if you have an interest in the art world, and is well illustrated with large color photographs.

More importantly, the text is revelatory enough to be a textbook, yet is an entertaining, understandable read at a decent price. I had to buy this book for a Contemporary Art class at my University. Heartney gives great precedence to visual representations of the works she discusses as well as a very conclusive and insightful description. While I enjoy this book, I do not enjoy lugging it around campus.


Word to the wise: Had to get this book for a class. Great book on showing many types of art and wonderful text. See all 17 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
