The Making of Modern Art

28.00 EUROS

The critic Michael Peppiatt has been described by Art Newspaper as “the best art writer of his generation.” For more than 50 years, he has written trenchant and lively dispatches from the center of the international art world. In this new volume of key works, Peppiatt gives his unique insight into the making, collection, display, and interpretation of modern art.
Covering the whole spectrum of modern art—from pioneers such as Gustav Klimt and Chaim Soutine, to collectors and dealers who played a pivotal role in the modern art world, to artists such as Francis Bacon, Bill Jacklin, and Frank Auerbach, with whom he had close relationships—Peppiatt interweaves personal anecdote with critical judgment. Each text is accompanied by a new short introduction, written in Peppiatt’s signature vivid and jargon-free style, in which he contextualizes his writings and reflects on significant moments in a lifetime of artistic engagement. This volume will provide readers with an exhilarating tour of 20th-century art.
