Modern art denotes the style and philosophy of the art produced during that era. The term is associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in the spirit of experimentation. The modern artist often would experiment with the new ways of viewing and interpreting fresh ideas and apply them to the nature of materials and functionality of art.

The pioneers of modern Art were realists, romantics, and impressionists. It was only after World War II that the US became the focal point of new artistic movements. The 1950s and 60s saw the emergence of abstract expressionism, Pop Art, Hard-edge painting, medical abstraction, Post-minimalism, photorealism and various other modern movements.
