あらすじ・解説

The 20th century witnessed an explosion of creativity as artists, musicians, and writers rejected centuries of past practice and boldly created new visual forms, new musical languages, and new ways of thinking. This is the story of the individuals who created the art, told within the context of the times in which they lived.

Very Helpful Overview

This book goes through the founders and major players in each "modernist" art movement that developed in the 20th century. I am interested in Surrealism and this book helps to give an idea of the background, context, and contemporary movements to the Surrealists.

Great listen!

Good for those who are interested in a broad overview of 20th century art or would like a refresher. While some might prefer to read it physically if they’re not familiar with a work that might be mentioned, those who are listening for a refresher probably won’t have that sort of problem. Any works I wasn’t super familiar with (mostly the musical side) I took a moment to write down the name and would listen to or further research it later.

Overall, well written and well read! Of particular interest to me were the sections about styles of art from 1900 to 1950, and this was one of few audiobooks that touched on that period with a satisfying depth.

Fairly by the numbers overview

This is a fairly typical overview of the more important movement and events of Modernism, with an unexpectedly large focus on music. It feels a bit like the authors first attempt at writing a book, as it tends to skip backwards to cover ground that had been forgotten about, and lacks detail for some important movements, while giving a great deal of time to comparatively minor events.

The narrator has an occasional tendency to pronounce words incorrectly, be lying his ignorance of the subject matter - something which would have required only a quick retake. Occasionally he sounds a little bored too, despite the contents being fairly interesting.

The meat of the audiobook itself is fine, but rarely provides any sparkling moments of drama or controversy. I listened to it all the way through, but felt that it could have been given a lot more energy than it was provided with, and the narrators performance reflects that.
