Academic but another great Open Uni text mostly about the significant role of Jackson Pollock and other abstract American expressionists in USA circa 1950-60, 'high modernism', minimalism and Andy Warhol. I would highly recommend AA318 course at Open Uni if anyone else finds this kinda stuff floats their boat!
