We define Modern Art as the history of artistic achievements in the age of modernism, approximately between the years of 1850 and 1980.

Just as there is the history of the world, we discuss the particular settings surrounding historical developments in the arts. And similarly to physics, where one scientist builds on the breakthroughs of others, we approach art as a progression of artistic discoveries.

Every one of our topic pages is designed to convince a complete skeptic of the importance of the particular artist, movement or idea it covers. Each idea is presented clearly, succinctly, and without reliance on specialized art terms or "advanced" concepts, making Modern Art both accessible and digestible for all.

These Art Story values and concepts are reflected in every logical argument, artist quote, or supporting resource throughout our website. The content grows every week, is read by over 9 million internet visitors per year, and continues to attract more and more people to Modern Art.
