This publication concentrates on individual works, each piece breaking some amount of new ground, and with 300 featured pieces by as many artists, this means an average of two game changers for every year. Each work is accompanied by a text that places it within the larger narrative, introducing the artist and outlining the agenda. Introductions to all the important art movements give the reader a more thorough grounding in the historical developments, but most of all it is the year-by-year succession of groundbreaking works, both classics and surprising rediscoveries, that tells the story of an art that always thrived on innovation.
