The Opus is divided into seven sections, each reflecting different aspects of the work which has been exhibition over the last twenty years, including the infamous Sensation and controversial Young British Artists, as well as The Triumph of Painting and New Chinese Art. The text includes essays by leading art critics Richard Cork and Brian Sewell, Sir Norman Rosenthal, former secretary of Exhibitions at The Royal Academy of Art, and actor Steve Martin.
