9781844037803: A-Z Great Modern Artists (A-Z Great Modern series)

A fun introduction to the world of modern artists, from Albers to Zox, via Basquiat, Kahlo, Warhol and more.

A striking, design-led reference book, A-Z Great Modern Artists features Andy Tuohy's portraits of 52 key modern artists, rendered in each artist's own characteristic style - including Aleksandr Rodchenko in trademark green and red, Andy Warhol as a classic repeated print, and Marc Quinn as a frozen blood head in a box.

With text by art historian Christopher Masters, each artist's entry will also have a summary of the essential things you need to know about the artist; their biographical details, why they're so significant, where you can find their works today, and a surprising fact or two about them as well as reproductions of key works.

Whether you're already an art expert, or looking for a helpful cheat to navigating around a gallery, you'll love this guide to global artists of the modern age.

Andy Tuohy is a graphic designer and worked in advertising for many years before becoming a freelance artist/ designer. He has had design work commissioned by the Tate Modern and Tate Liverpool, Turner Contemporary and Henley Regatta, and has been featured in Design Week amongst other publications.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up—This compact introduction to modern art covers 52 different figures, chosen for their "profound and lasting impact on the world." The entries are arranged alphabetically, with at least one artist for each letter. Accompanied by graphic-style portraits that simplify each artists' technique into its core stylistic elements, each profile includes a brief biography, reproductions of famous works, and "Where to See [Artist's] Work" and "Did You Know?" sidebars. Interestingly, Tuohy, who created all these portraits, is considered the book's author (he selected all the individuals and penned the preface). However, art historian Masters's encyclopedic articles are just as relevant as the images. He provides fascinating and thorough details, for instance, walking readers through the many artistic movements to which Piet Mondrian contributed. There are also mentions of the artists' personal lives, such as Jackson Pollock's alcoholism and Yayoi Kusama's "orgy parties." VERDICT A useful, portable guide.—Jessica Cline, New York Public Library
