Classic Modern Art - Art Prints, Paintings & Posters
Classic Modern Art - Characteristics, Artists and ArtworksClassic modern art is a term used to refer to the art movements that emerged in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, Expressionism, and Surrealism. These movements were characterized by a departure from traditional artistic styles and a focus on experimentation and innovation. Impressionism, for example, is known for its use of light and color to capture fleeting moments and impressions, while Post-Impressionism built on this style to explore more abstract and symbolic forms. Fauvism emphasized bold, bright colors and simplified forms, while Cubism shattered traditional notions of perspective and presented multiple viewpoints in a single image. Expressionism sought to convey intense emotion and inner experience through distorted forms and vibrant colors, and Surrealism explored the realm of dreams and the subconscious through bizarre and fantastical imagery. Some of the most famous artists associated with classic modern art include Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Wassily Kandinsky, and Salvador Dali. Their works have had a profound impact on the development of modern art and continue to influence contemporary artists today.
