Gompertz, Will

Summary: "We all know what Modern Art looks like. We've seen Monet's water lilies, we've admired Picasso's nudes, and we've gawked at Damien's shark, as well as the price tag.

What Are You Looking At? takes the reader on a captivating tour of modern art from Impressionism to the present...
