I used to think that I didn't like or understand modern art, but I don't think this is the case. I think that many people assume that if you look at something by Picasso or Kandinsky or Chagall, it has to be great, and you must just "not get it". But I think that is just lemming-think. Even a great artist has variation in the quality of their work - some are great and some are not so great. This book really openened my eyes to this fact by juxtaposing some of the art that I've never really seen before - and it's great!
