The most exciting, and possibly the most fruitful, trend in the visual arts since the early 1950s has been the steady erosion of traditional boundaries: between painting and sculpture painting and film, film and typograhphy, photography and print-making, fine and commercial art. Rauschenberg began to silkscreen photographic half-tones directly on to canvas; Hansorg Mayer and others, experimenting in autonomus typography, created concrete poetry: Antonioni painted with film, and Godard interspliced verbal messages with film sequences. The photography of Brandt, De Maré and Raymond Moore must be judged by the same standards as the work of a painter, however different their aims. Christo's wrapped objects and Boyle's happenings show how art can be extended into our environment and our lives.
These and other developments are ably ilustrated in this book, which includes the work of over seventy artists drawn from many countries. Each artist is aldo represented by a statement of his aims (often in his own words), and a biography.
