CHRISTIANE WEIDEMANN is the author of several books on art, including 50 Women Artists You Should Know . If you know absolutely nothing about contemporary artists, this may not be a bad introduction.

CHRISTIANE WEIDEMANN is the author of several books on art, including 50 Women Artists You Should Know and 50 Modern Artists You Should Know (both by Prestel). It tries to cover all aspects of contemporary art-2D, 3D, multimedia, and left me feeling like I really didn't get to know enough about the artists in any one area. I do study art and read broadly about contemporary art, and was struck by how few of these artists I had ever heard of. I know, I know-that's the point of a book like this.

This survey of great contemporary artists is the perfect introduction to the exciting world of art today. Artists working after the Second World War faced a confounding array of challenges, as stylistic barriers were broken, technology advanced, and issues of sexuality and race came to the forefront. From painters and photographers to sculptors and performance artists, fifty of the most influential contemporary artists are profiled in this colorful and engaging book that traces the various artistic movements and radical changes of the second half of the twentieth and early twentyfirst centuries. Presented chronologically, each artist is featured in 2 or 4-page spreads that include brilliant reproductions of their most important works, an illuminating biography, key dates in their career, and informative background on major developments in the art world. Throughout the volume a timeline places each artist within the context of contemporary art. As diverse and inspiring as the artists themselves, this book is a voyage of discovery into art's cutting edge.

If you know absolutely nothing about contemporary artists, this may not be a bad introduction. It tries to cover all aspects of contemporary art--2D, 3D, multimedia, and left me feeling like I really didn't get to know enough about the artists in any one area. I do study art and read broadly about contemporary art, and was struck by how few of these artists I had ever heard of. I know, I know--that's the point of a book like this. But I assume that the reason I SHOULD know these artists is that their work is seminal and available, and so far that hasn't been the case for me.

As an overall intro to art and art history, I will have to say that the "50 _____ You Should Know" (pretty much all of them) are a good reference set to have. The articles are typically concise, well illustrated, and whet your interest in learning more about the artists.

Great book! The quality was very nice for a paperback: glossy, thick cover. The artists inside are a good collection for anyone to get a glimpse into late 20th, early 21st century artists. I used this as a supplement to the text book teaching my high school Art History class and it worked great for that. Each page has a few examples of the artists' work plus some interesting facts about where they are from, where they went to school, their influences and inspiration. There were a lot of contemporary books out there and I had a hard time choosing one, but I made the right choice with this one.

A great way to get acquainted with new artist of the 21st century. I particularly liked a photo of each artist and their time line overhead reflecting world events during their life.

Its a really well done book with excellent photos and brief bios. .I just needed it for a class and have no real interest in contemporary art. I find it weird and this book just enforces that perspective. LOL

"50 great..." is a wonderful book i discovered at Mass MoCA. I did not not have much time to lok at it as the museum was closing but I decided to get a copy once I got home. Full of great pictures and information about the artists and the body of work of each.
