Great Modern Artists A to Z book by Andy Tuohy and Christopher Masters
Great Modern Artists A to Z is a design-led reference book, featuring Andy Tuohy's portraits of 52 key modern artists, rendered in each artist's own characteristic style. Portraits include Aleksandr Rodchenko in his constructivist poster style, Andy Warhol as a classic repeat print and Barbara Hepworth illustrated to resemble one of her distinctive bronze and rod sculptures. With expert text by art historian Christopher Masters, each artist's entry includes a summary of the essential things you need to know about the artist; their biographical details, why they're so significant, where you can find their works today, a surprising fact about them and reproductions of key works. Whether you're already an art expert, or looking for a helpful cheat to navigating a gallery, we know you'll love this stunning and intelligent guide to global artists of the modern age.
Each book is signed by the artist.
Andy Tuohy creates retro inspired original artworks of architecture, landmarks, locations and objects. Andy trained as a graphic designer at Liverpool Polytechnic (now John Moores) and worked in publishing and advertising for many years before going it alone as an artist designer. His work often includes subjects as diverse as modernist architecture; coastal landmarks from beach huts to bus shelters; transport; landscapes and seascapes.
