Bibliography Reflection

I have never been very knowledgeable with modern art in the sphere of the arts. This book fills in some of the gaps in my understanding of the history of art and the development of modern art from a pretty wide perspective, and I discovered several of my favourite artists in the book. For instance, I had no idea why Duchamp's urinal had such a significant impact on the history of art until reading this book. After reading it, I understood why: he challenged and overturned several established theories and conceptions while proposing an entirely new one. new concepts

But I have seen many people's revolt towards life and pursuit of art in the book, and their energy also gave me some determination when I was confused and sad Motivation to go down. Most artists are not easy sailing in the process of following their dreams, nor are they condemned to success.
