The works included here are perfect representations of 20th century art, but are fresh examples and not the usual suspects. This book is, in essence, a game that allows the reader not only to test his or her knowledge of art but to see and appreciate it in a new way. The Art Game Book lets you start where you like and browse your way from one art movement to another, or from one era to the next, through questions, games, definitions, and commentaries.
