Featuring nearly 400 reproductions, an opulently illustrated journey of exploration through an eventful century in British art history.
Who does not remember the triumphant advance of Young British Art that provoked the art scene in the nineties? With works from 100 artists, this publication traces the epoch- making art movements of an entire century beginning and ending with a decided break with the traditional: As early as 1914, a group of young British artists, the vorticists, in their magazine Blast propagated a style which blended influences from French cubism and Italian futurism into an independent British modernism. In turn, mavericks such as Henry Moore and Francis Bacon are unthinkable without the British primitivists and surrealists of the twenties and thirties. The specifically British strand of pop art began with the legendary exhibitions of the Independent Group in the fifties. In the eighties, New British Sculpture emerged, represented by important exponents such as Tony Cragg or Antony Gormley. The Young British Artists and the show Freeze jointly organized by Damien Hirst and friends in the London docklands in 1988 finally bring the historical survey to a close. (English edition available 3-7757-1248-8) The artists: Francis Bacon, Peter Blake, Tony Cragg, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Lucian Freud, Gilbert & George, Antony Gormley, Richard Hamilton, Damien Hirst, David Hockney, Gary Hume, Allen Jones, R. B. Kitaj, Richard Long, Henry Moore, Julian Opie, Bridget Riley, and others
