The purpose of the collection of essays included in the book is to critically analyze with a new millennium perspective some 20th century art personages, beyond the traditional historic academic narrative. The present texts recognize individualities based on their own merits, considering the artists synchrony with the great art movements of their times, examining the life and artwork of Frida Kahlo, Amedeo Modigliani, Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Georgia O'Keeffe, Tamara de Lampicka and other figures whose fame grows with time, due to their specific artistic proposals and for their much studied biographies. Includes texts by Maria-Josep Balza, Estrella de Diego, Mercè Ibarz, María Dolores Jiménez-Blanco, Pablo Jiménez Burillo, Simón Marchán Fiz, Vicente Molina Foix, Pascal Rousseau, Agustín Sánchez Vidal, Guillermo Solana and Mary Anne Steven.
