As described by Christopher de Lotbinière's Rare Books

Shock of the New: The Hundred Year History of Modern Art, Its Rise, Its Dazzling Achievement, Its Fall by Robert Hughes. NY: Knopf, 1981. First printing. Jacket shows small edge wear. Hardcover. Hughes at his magisterial best, dissecting and kvetching, admiring and defining what has happened since the Impressionists rebelled against the Establishment. Coinciding with a BBC series, this was a seminal, detailed work that ushered in the great '80s boom in the art world.
