Modern Art

The term "modern art" is used to describe the various artistic currents and trends that arose between the middle of the 19th and middle of the 20th centuries. In its broad scope, it includes everything from the Impressionists to conceptual and abstract artists.

Artists of the modern era strove to innovate by moving away from established practices and norms, exploring new materials and approaches like oil painting, photography, and collage.

They frequently addressed the difficulties posed by the development of new technology, as well as shifts in social, political, and cultural norms in the fast evolving modern world. Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, and Minimalism are all important trends and styles in Modern art.
