Paintings "Modern at 1900"

In addition to the revolution of the society around the turn of the century a whole new way of artistic expression has arisen. The art was then kind of an enormous medium for experiments with new styles. Artists began searching for new motives, painting techniques and shapes and turning away from the traditional painting. They try to express their own perception as well as imparting this to the viewer by using colours and shapes in a new creative way. This new modernity was criticised and admired in the art salons in European metropolises.
