Mid Century Modern Wood Head Carving. Estimated more than 50 yrs old. Modern art includes artistic work produced during the 1860s to the 1970s, and denotes the style and philosophy of the art produced during that era. Modern artists experimented with new ways of seeing and with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art. A tendency away from the narrative, which was characteristic for the traditional arts, toward abstraction is characteristic of much modern art. Modern art begins with the heritage of painters like Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cezanne, Paul Gauguin, Georges Seurat and Henri de Toulouse Lautrec all of whom were essential for the development of modern art.
