Modernism 1900-present day BACK

Modern or 20th century art is almost indefinable, and ironically that could be considered its definition. And this makes sense since today the world is in a constant state of flux. So art naturally reflects this. It has been estimated that there are more artists practicing today than were alive during the entire Renaissance, all three centuries of it.

There is no mainstream. The Modern style was formed gradually and by the interaction of many influences. It all came together with Picasso and Braque and the formation of Cubism. This style was all visual. And from this a host of
-isms was formed. These were Futurism, Dadaism, Surrealism, Expressionism, Illusionism, Minimalism, and the list goes on....

Most modern works of art are under copyright. The artist or his/her estate has disallowed the free use of these images on the web and the cost of licensing cannot be recouped by me. For some artists I have provided links to images on other web sites or to the printfinders catalog.

If there are any public-spirited, wealthy art lovers out there who would like to make an exceedingly generous gesture by paying for the licensing fees necessary to put modern images online for the world to enjoy, please contact me via the email link below. Corporate sponsorship of this expense would be welcomed as well, and rewarded with prominent acknowledgement.
