This book achieves all this and focuses on interrogating the idea of modern art by asking such questions as: What has made a work of art qualify as modern (or fail to)? How has this selection been made? What is the relationship between modern and contemporary art? Is postmodernist art no longer modern, or just no longer modernist - in either case, why, and what does this claim mean, both for art and the idea of the modern? Cottington examines many key aspects of this subject, including the issue of controversy in modern art, from Manets Dejeuner sur LHerbe (1863) to Picassos Les Demoiselles, and Tracey Emins Bed, (1999)- and the role of the dealer from the main Cubist art dealer Kahnweiler to Charles Saatchi.
