Exhaustive. Includes majors galleries associated with each school (modern and contemporary art): a smart thought. Although presented like an encyclopedia, reading the thing cover to cover makes you intimately aware of the impact art has had on all facets of society for the past couple of centuries -- not the least of which is the impact of art on art itself.
