Modern art is less a style and more of an era of art that encompasses a plethora of styles, typically accepted to have begun in the 1860s with the rise of Impressionist, Realists and Romantic works, developing through to the 1970s.

Modern arts focus is on experimentation, abstraction, and introspection, utilising the past to make sense of the present, and developing new styles and approaches to the formation of a piece, such as the prominent brushstrokes of impressionism, or the reduction of form to shapes such as circles and squares within cubist works.

The variety and scope within modern art have meant that the styles utilised during this era have endured into the present, as such, this has led to a continued evolution of heavily established styles.
