Really interesting and informative tour even for my husband and I who love art, visit many museums, exhibitions and galleries each year. Ellen's style is very interactive and very approachable. No question is too simple or too complex. Go!!!

This is a wonderful introduction to modern art. The tour is only an hour long but givea good overall perspective of the origins of modern art and where contemporary art is headed currently.
