After the decline of Impressionism, a wealth of European and American artists and movements start to appear not adhering to standard categories.  In the 7th installment of our 9-part Art History series, we explore the paths of the post-Impressionists and uncover the origins of modern architecture, sculpture, painting, and design.

Among the Modern Art styles and movements discussed are:

  • Art Nouveau
  • Fauvism
  • Expressionism
  • Cubism
  • Futurism
  • De Stijl
  • Dada
  • New Objectivity
  • Surrealism
  • early movements of Abstraction

The stylistic and philosophical characteristic of each movement or individual are investigated and integrated into the broader framework of intellectual history.
