Discussions of the vocabulary and meanings of modern art and some of the ways visual effects are used are interspersed with commentaries from working U.S. artists. Full-color reproductions of art and photographs of artists at work are integral to the information here, all of which will assist viewers of new art in museums, galleries, offices, public spaces and mass media to gain a responsive eye which can go beyond "I like it" or "I don't like it." The artists' biographies at the end are grouped according to the movement with which they are most closely identified. A glossary, index and two-part bibliography contribute additional resources to this valuable book. (Age 10 and older)
