look up any word, like pussy:
 
1.
It is an over theorised term used to describe a very old fashioned art movement.
I occured from around 1850 to 1950. Impressionism, cubism, fauvism, and realism are examples of modernism.
Modernism was replaced by postmodernism - Which one can not even talk about in a dictionary.
I still don't understand what exactly "modernism" means - it happened over a hundred years ago.
