The history of art, as this developed after the Second World War, is an important chapter of the global cultural heritage. Europe and the United States of America led the field in charting the new paths that artists followed after 1945. In the second half of the twentieth century, art became inventive and rich in expressive manners, but at the same time difficult and enigmatic. Movements and trends took shape, which contain elements of both the pictorial and the abstract. Through the pages of the book History of Art since 1945 in Five Units, activities in the visual arts are projected in a readily comprehensible and scientifically documented text, amplified by abundant illustrations. The book is addressed not only to students interested in researching this period, but also to nonspecialists, to those who wonder when beholding a contemporary artistic creation: "Is this work considered art?." Presented in chronological sequence in the five comprehensive units of the book are various artistic currents - Abstraction, Expressionism, Realism and many other avant-garde trends - as well as their representatives. In addition to the foreign creators, there is reference also to Greek artists whose work belongs in a wider internationalized framework.
