20th Century artists changed forever the way we view modern art.
For the first time, artists achieved superstar status bringing famous paintings into people's lives. While 20th-century art began in the late 19th century with the Modernist movement, it then spread to Fauvism which started in France, and the Bridge, Die Brucke, which started in Germany.
A tremendous outpouring of artistic styles was born from these movements, known collectively as Modern Art.
Major styles and movements of 20th-century art are Fauvism, Cubism, Futurism, Dada, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Photorealism, and Neo-Expressionism.
