Famous Modern Artists, modern art as we know it begins with Manet and the Impressionist movement. It was Manet who first challenged the driving concepts in art, and who first challenged the viewer, his sensibilities, lifestyle and very interpretation of what art is. What art is, is the question of modern art. Realism and representation are outweighed by interpretation and esoteric meaning. Artist moon as a group, and that is why we think of art in movements. The major Renaissance movement was precipitated by science and culture and each movement thereafter has been similarly affected by technology and cultural movement. Impressionism was preceded by Turner in many ways but artists like our famous modern artists Monet, Pizarro, and Cézanne redefined landscape art. In many ways, Cézanne represents the advent of true modernism because he broke the landscape into abstraction. Also, Picasso can be called the father of modern art, because he is the true father of abstract art. Cubism became the first real challenge of our modern artistic era. Like the Renaissance and the Impressionist movements, the modern movement, as we know it, began with drastic changes in our society. Cubism coincides with the Industrial Revolution of the early 20th century. Abstract expressionism and modern art from famous modern artists of contemporary art represents the result of the Industrial Revolution.
