Overview

A veteran art critic helps us make sense of modern and contemporary art

A hand-signed porcelain urinal. An abstract drip painting. A silent 700 hour performance.

Art has changed since the days of Giotto, Michelangelo, and even Picasso--and many of us are perplexed. Do modern and contemporary artists such as Marcel Duchamp, Jackson Pollock, and Marina Abramovic represent civilization's highest achievements? Or is something else afoot? In The Art of Looking, art critic Lance Esplund demonstrates that works of modern and contemporary art are not as indecipherable as they seem to be. He reveals the threads that weave the art of the past with that of the present, and shows us how to separate the genuine article from mere rags--not to mention the emperor's new clothes.

With patience, insight, and wit, Esplund guides us through a century of art, and empowers us to understand and appreciate all art with new eyes.
