Publisher's Summary

What is modern art? Why do we either love it or loathe it? And why is it worth so much damn money? Join Will Gompertz, the BBC Arts Editor and probably the world's first art-history stand-up comedian, on a dazzling audio tour that will change the way you think about modern art forever. In the fourth of this 20-part course, you can discover how three great artists - van Gogh, Gaugin and Seurat - changed the look of modern art with radical reimagining of colour, line, and subject matter. And find out which one of them were an arrogant self-publicising dandy, bully, and a syphilitic schemer. If you want to see the images in question, just use the accompanying PDF, or follow the links.

Post-Impressionism is part of a downloadable audiobook series taken from the book What Are You Looking At? : 150 Years of Modern Art in the Blink of an Eye. Future titles include Impressionism, Cubism, and Pop Art. You can take the whole course, or pick and choose which movement suits you. Whether you are a sceptic or an art lover, this funny, lively and accessible course on modern art is bound to make your next gallery or museum visit a little less intimidating, and a lot more interesting.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Content 5 delivery 1"

    This well written book has unfortunately been sold short by the publishers attempt to wring maximum profit by dividing the content into separate chapters, this is compounded by the lack of individual chapter numbers, I suggest the best response to this is to avod purchasing any of the individual sections and wait until penguin release the entire book as one
