A movement that came after post impressionism that explores recognizing a painting (or sculpture etc...) as an independent entity, rather than an illusionstic creation or "window to another world" Artists would explore with color, texture, and the appeasement of the human eye rather than a particular rendered image. Modern Art was also greatly related to music- many woks were called compositions or improvizations rather than having titles like "the annunciation" or other traditional imagery in artwork. Frequently confused with contemperary art which refers to current artists. Artists include Kandinsky, Pollack, etc.
Paul Klee is a modern artist.
