The Usborne Introduction to Modern Art

By Rosie Dickins
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars

Category: Nonfiction – Art

Personal Evaluation: I thought this was a great basic modern art book, and I was pleasantly surprised to see some of my favorite artists included, such as Andy Goldsworthy. I was also interested to see that the author included a photo of a cross-dressing artist and a brief, matter-of-fact description of that person.

What might interest children: The layout is simple but visually appealing, with information in little chunks and related images. It was very easy to follow as it goes chronologically and has lots of reference aids at the back (a timeline, a glossary, index, etc).
