Modern art is a term used in reference to works of art that were created, in approximately the period between the 1860s and the 1970s and also is used in regard to the philosophy and style of art produced in that time.

Vincent Van Gogh, Georges Seurat, Paul Gaugin just to mention a few are the people who have always inspired your passion for modern art and without them, you would not own the extensive collection of your own work. If you are just starting out or you have always had your own collection of paintings, and you do not know where you could have them exhibited.

You may not understand the distinction between these different kinds of modern art, and so we will explain them to you.

Realism is a style of painting that shows the reality of what your eyes can only see. It can be used interchangeably with the term mimesis, illusionism or even verisimilitude. What this form of modern art does, is that it depicts subjects in a manner that they are not, thus creating the illusion. However, it could also refer to portraying the characters in the painting without leaving out their negative traits. Examples of illusionist visual arts that fall under Realism are Ancient Egyptian art. To summarize, we can say that Realism in an artwork is displayed wherever a subject has been well observed and depicted with accuracy.

Certainly, you have heard of the great paint artist Pablo Picasso. He was among the early pioneers of Cubism in the 20th century. Divided into two, Cubism is also another subdivision of modern art. Analytic cubism involves ‘analyzing’ natural forms and transforming them into geometric parts on a two-dimensional picture plane, whereas synthetic cubism involves the creation of visual arts that have collage elements, different textures, papier colle, surfaces and a broad range of combined subject matter.

Abstract Expressionism is another classification of modern art, that started out in the United States soon after the Second World War, making New York, the center of the art world in the West.

Another classification of modern art is Impressionism. This is a modern art movement that began in the late 19th century, as an association of artists based in Paris at the time and whose exhibitions (which were independent), brought them prominence. The characteristics of these sorts of paintings include open composition, thin, small, but visible strokes of the brush and accurate displays of light’s changing qualities in order to bring out the aspect of changing time, the inclusion of movement in order to depict human experience and perception and are also composed of the very ordinary subject matter.
