"Learning to Look at Modern Art is a guide to the visual understanding, history and analysis of modern art. It suggests that the best way to understand the art of the modern and postmodern period is to look closely at it and to consider the different elements that make up each art work - composition, space and form, light and colour, and subject-matter."--Jacket
