For centuries artists have been pushing the limits of society's norms, whether in the form of a new technique, subject matter, or message. This fascinating volume presents dozens of paintings, prints, photographs and installations that horrified audiences when they were created. Each example is presented in generous two-page spreads, with large colour reproductions and insightful texts that explore the artists' intentions and the pieces' historical context. Most of these works no longer have the power to shock us, but a number of them still do. Together they offer a thought-provoking exploration of the artist's duty to instigate, inspire and move their audience toward new ways of thinking.
