“Seen this century…” was designed by the author, as the title suggests, as an introduction and guide for buyers looking to invest in the art market. Brown has chosen 100 artists who have come to prominence in art galleries, auction houses and in the media since 2000. These artists work in a range of different media and the styles represented are as broad as is possible. Despite his intention to produce a guide, Brown has also created a fabulous and fresh book for secondary level art students looking for inspiration.
The book is chock full of excellent colour reproductions but I feel would be more useful to the art student than the art historian due to the small amount of biographical text on each of the artists. Highly recommended for secondary art students and art teachers.
