    Between 1850 and 1950, a shocking rebellion transformed the staid culture of the Western world in a relentless assault on traditional forms. This original, elegant and wide-ranging study charts the origins of the movement in the work of Baudelaire and Flaubert before examining the transformation of painting by Kandinsky, Mondrian and the sexually explicit Picasso; literature by Joyce, Proust, Eliot and Woolf; music by Stravinsky and Schoenberg; and architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier and the Bauhaus.
