Herschel B. Chipp's 'Theories of Modern Art: A Source Book By Artists and Critics' is a collection of texts from letters, manifestos, notes and interviews. Sources include, as the title says, artists and critics - some expected, like van Gogh, Gauguin, Apollinaire, Mondrian, Greenberg, just to name a few - and some less so: Trotsky and Hitler, in the section on Art and Politics. The book is a wonderful resource and insight into the way artists think and work.

David Sylvester here muses on key artists of the twentieth century and their nineteenth-century forebears. In the process, he offers profound insights into their practice of art. Focusing on the spectator's instinctive emotional and physical response to paintings by such artists as Picasso, Matisse, de Kooning, Newman, and Warhol, Sylvester brings an inspiring sense of the relevance and importance of art to life.

Belle Prokoff is the last of a famous generation of painters for whom art was a secular religion—worth any amount of struggle and sacrifice for its promise of redemption. She is also the widow of Clay Madden, who revolutionized American art, became a near-mythic figure, and died in a drunken car crash. Blunt, fierce, and scornful of the world’s hypocrisy, Belle has passionately protected her husband’s memory in the three decades since his death. She has also persevered with her painting while the fashionable art scene fawns over her, not for her own work but for the valuable Madden canvases she clings to as the last relic of her tormented marriage. Now, facing the prospect of her impending death, Belle is confronted with another kind of threat: An unscrupulous biographer is snooping around in her past, working on a sensational book about Madden’s life. Before her battle to silence him spirals out of control, she is forced to make her peace with the people and events that have haunted her for decades. But Modern Art is not just Belle’s story. It is the story of all those still living in Madden’s shadow, from his flamboyant ex-dealer to a paranoid drug addict who sees himself as Madden’s spiritual son. It is the story of Paul, a younger painter aspiring to Madden’s greatness but obsessed with the art world’s neglect. And it is the story of Lizzie, a naïve romantic who has made Paul the center of her existence—a mistake Belle recognizes all too well when she hires Lizzie as her live-in companion. Inspired by the lives of Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, this elegiac, impassioned novel creates a fictional universe full of vivid characters and intense confrontations. It is a tale of betrayal and longing, renunciation and self-discovery: the age-old conflicts of love and art.

This companion volume to the author's Learning to Look at Paintings addresses some of the questions most commonly asked about modern art. Why does it appear so different from the art of the past? Why is it so difficult to understand? How should we approach it? Acton suggests that the best way to understand modern art is to look closely at it, and to consider the different elements that make up each art work - composition, space and form, light and colour and subject matter. Her engaging and beautifully-written guide to art of the modern and postmodern period covers key art movements including Expressionism, Constructivism, the Bauhaus, Surrealism, Pop Art, Conceptual Art and Young British Art, and artistic forms such as architecture and design, sculpture and installation as well as works on canvas. The book is richly illustrated with colour and black and white images by the artists, designers and architects discussed, ranging from Picasso and Matisse to Le Corbusier, Andy Warhol and Rachel Whiteread.
