About this course:

Fauvism, Cubism, Orphism, Expressionism, Futurism. Following the revolution that is Impressionism, the art world splintered into many different artistic movements. Driven by a desire for independence, originality and experimentation, the start of the 20th century ushered in a multitude of avant-garde styles. Supported by a burgeoning open art market, a strong economy and an attitude of optimism, artists became free to experiment with increasingly individual artistic styles and methods. This course gives an overview of some of these unique styles and the artists—such as Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Wassily Kandinsky—who created them.
