The Modern Art movement lasted roughly from the 1860’s to the 1970’s. It was a movement that had artists warping images until they were almost unrecognizable. The idea for it came out of the Industrial Revolution. Changes in technology, transportation, etc. affected the social and economic structures of the world, making artist question how everything should work, and demonstrate that confusion in the twisted forms they created. As opposed to previous times, when artists were hired by elites or churches to depict lifelike and instructional pieces, artists of the Modern began exploring the subconscious mind with their work, perhaps inspired by Freud’s theories on dreams. Artists began experimenting with different colors, shapes, materials, and mediums. Somewhat ironically because of how exactly and perfectly it captures images, photography became a new medium with which artists expressed themselves. Above are some examples of Modernist paintings

    One more thing. I think that there are several travel insurance web pages of trustworthy companies that permit you to enter holiday details and obtain you the prices. You can also purchase an international holiday insurance policy on-line by using your current credit card. All you need to do is usually to enter all travel specifics and you can start to see the plans side-by-side. Simply find the system that suits your financial allowance and needs and after that use your bank credit card to buy it. Travel insurance on the internet is a good way to begin looking for a reputable company with regard to international travel insurance. Thanks for expressing your ideas.
