Book Recommendation: ‘150 years of Modern Art in the blink of an eye’ by Will Gompertz.

My latest pre-sleep bedtime companion – ‘What are you looking at? 150 years of Modern Art in the blink of an eye’ by Will Gompertz.⁠

“In my option the best place to start when it comes to appreciating and enjoying modern and contemporary art is not to decide whether it’s any good or not, but to understand how it evolved from Leonardo’s classicism to today’s pickled sharks and unmade beds.⁠

As with most seemingly impenetrable subjects, art is like a game, all you really need to know is the basic rules and regulations for the once baffling to start making some sense.”⁠

We couldn’t agree more! Contemporary art in particular can be so hard to get one’s head around, but it makes such a difference when you grasp the evolution of art and the context of why art today is what it is.⁠
