Art History, Popular Culture and the Cinema offers a lavishly illustrated survey of how various major art historical and popular culture movements were reflected in popular cinema over the past century. It is designed specifically for university students and a general public interested to understand such things as the artistic influences on Alfred Hitchcock's thrillers, the art movements that contributed to the "look" of the Beatles' films and the arguments about the future that created Fritz Lang's 1925 masterpiece Metropolis.
