Following Land and Environmental Art and Arte Povera, this is the third volume in Phaidon's Themes and Movements series: large-format hardbacks which bring together key images and texts (by both practitioners and critics) to document major tendencies in post-war art.
They make serious works of reference but are attractive just to browse. Mimimalism considers not only the obvious artists - Andre, Flavin, Judd, LeWitt etc - but several who are less familiar in the UK (Ann Truitt, David Novros). It illustrates their careers from the formative 1960s up to the present.
