Art and the 60s presents a comprehensive cultural history of the period, exploring a wide range of visual media, including fine art, architecture and photography, examining works in the context of such phenomena as Americanisation, the breakdown of the divide between 'high' and 'low' culture, pop music, the sexual revolution and the growth of the counter-culture.
Illustrated throughout and featuring contributions by leading writers on the period, Art and the 60s is both a history of the art of a generation and the portrait of an era.
