Thinking in Space By ANATOLE BROYARD THE MEANINGS OF MODERN ART. By John Russell. Illustrated. 429 pages. The Museum of Modern Art/Harper & Row. $35 hardcover. $16.95 paperback. ''The best art of the past hundred years,'' John Russell writes, ''came into being on occasions when nothing from the past would fill the bill. What these occasions were, and what art did about them, is the subject of this book.''
