History of Modern Art

The beginnings of modern painting can be located earlier the end of the 19th century. The recognition of Modern Art can be traced all the way back to the Enlightenment period and even as far back as the 17th century.

Modern art will include artistic works produced during the period extending roughly from been 1860s sixties to the early 1970s. 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.
