Movement Overview

Impressionist and Modern art spanned less than 100 years but paved the way for later artists. From the mid-19th century, Impressionism rebelled against academic and figurative art to experiment with new uses of colour, painting techniques and subjects, such as everyday life and urban scenes. Modern art continued this exploration until the mid-20th century with dynamic movements such as Fauvism, Futurism, Cubism and Surrealism. Their subjects, materials and styles were reflective of their times, yet also timelessly relevant – works by artists like Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse continue to inspire today.
