Reviews

"Gompertz has an uncanny knack for making difficult art (and ideas) easy...A lively, witty account of the major moments and movements of the past 150 years."--Associated Press

"An insightful love letter to modern art and an irreverent rejection of the notion that its pleasures are reserved for a chosen few... Each [chapter] hums with engaging history and entertaining anecdotes, cheeky asides and accessible, illuminating criticism."-NPR "Gompertz is determined to dispel the layman's fear of the modern art world and those who inhabit it. What Are You Looking At?, which comes out this week, does a very good job of this--replacing isolating esotericism with witty and chatty commentary."--Interview "A deeply enlightening and buoyant history of modern art and beyond."--Booklist (starred review) "[A] highly lucid, lively, and buoyantly composed history...while his tone is breezy and conversational, [Gompertz] astutely and often wittily describes the core of every movement and its key artists."--Publishers Weekly
