Painting-todayPainting Today
Tony Godfrey
Phaidon, $120

Not only is this book an overview of contemporary painting, it is also an enquiry into how we experience contemporary images – what they mean and why the practice remains vital. The venerable art of painting still thrives as a leading force in the art market. Painting Today explores the development of the medium, especially through the last forty years, and the diversity of paintings now being made internationally. In Painting Today we see how these other art forms have inspired the development of painting techniques and styles. The lively and authoritative writing of Tony Godfrey presents these significant works organised by themes that have long been central in the genre – ranging from still life and landscape to abstraction and installation.
