Summary
"Art & Context: The '50s and '60s brings together twenty landmark works of art within the broader context of dynamic changes in art and society. During these decades, mass media and the allure of popular culture took hold, and the potential for mass destruction became a pervasive influence on world affairs. Modern times were replaced with the seeds of the postmodern: mainstream culture gave way to counterculture. New social, sexual, and racial freedoms were explored, as were new artistic freedoms."--Jacket
