Modern Art

Modern art is characterised by a departure from traditional styles and values, notably produced from the late 19th century to the late 20th century.

Modern art includes creative works created from around the 1860s to the 1970s, encapsulating the artistic styles and ideologies prevalent during this timeframe. Typically linked with art that boldly departs from traditional conventions, it reflects a spirit of experimentation that sets aside historical precedents.
