After Modern Art Reviews


"This excellent work focuses on important movements and issues in the visual arts from WWII to the present....[Hopkins]...succeeds in extending discussion out from American art to provide an international perspective as well as an exceptionally stimulating and cohesive commentary on the 'difficult'
art of the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. Reproductions are good; well-chosen, helpful notes; brief chapter bibliographies; useful time line; list of Web sites. Upper-division undergraduates and up."--Choice
"Hopkins is an able guide...creating a self-determined path through some remakrably dense territory but ready to point out the meaningful byways as well."--John Loughery, The Washington Post
"After Modern Art, in only 245 pages, covers that amazing creative period following the Second World War. Well documented with a good array of illustrations, this book is fun reading."--Gadfly
