Ever wander around a modern art museum and just have no idea what’s going on? It’s not easy! You may be told that these strange artistic constructions hold deep meanings. However, this is a misconstrual of the truth.

There is no real way to read modern art. For instance, modernist paintings are a consequence of a time that wanted viewers to channel their own emotions through looking at a different reality rather than guess at the deeper meaning of the artist. 

The only thing that may help you engage a little more with the paintings is some background information on the modern art movement, and the most important artists involved. With that said, click on to discover the abstract, expressive, and controversial world of modern art.
