A fun introduction to the world of modern artists, from Albers to Zox, via Basquiat, Kahlo, Warhol and more.

A striking, design-led reference book, A-Z Great Modern Artists features Andy Tuohy's portraits of 52 key modern artists, rendered in each artist's own characteristic style - including Aleksandr Rodchenko in trademark green and red, Andy Warhol as a classic repeated print, and Marc Quinn as a frozen blood head in a box.

With text by art historian Christopher Masters, each artist's entry will also have a summary of the essential things you need to know about the artist; their biographical details, why they're so significant, where you can find their works today, and a surprising fact or two about them as well as reproductions of key works.

Whether you're already an art expert, or looking for a helpful cheat to navigating around a gallery, you'll love this guide to global artists of the modern age.

Andy Tuohy is a graphic designer and worked in advertising for many years before becoming a freelance artist/ designer. He has had design work commissioned by the Tate Modern and Tate Liverpool, Turner Contemporary and Henley Regatta, and has been featured in Design Week amongst other publications.
