Feeling a bit artsy fartsy the last few days? You might be itching for something that you might have seen or have envisioned. Designing a room may seem like an easy task but for hardcore and serious homeowners who want to make good investments out of their homes, it pays to study a little bit about home decor. Books, magazines and visiting various properties can fill the mind with the best options for a truly majestic personal space. Some people even take cues from art and nowadays, and it seems like modern art is resurfacing.
Modern Art, What? – Do not be confused. In the art world, modern art is the period significantly prior to our “modern” times. It is actually a period in art from the 1860s to 1970s. It was during this time when experimentation was at its peak and the artists who emerged became the new masters for the contemporary artists of our time.
From the pointillism of Seurat, cubism of Picasso, the hazy landscapes of Van Gogh to Manet’s crossing lines of nudity and vulgarity, art has become modern. Add to that Degas, Delacroix and many other designers on both sides of the Atlantic. We recognize modern art as a time when artists truly experimented with inspirations, materials, methods and styles. The question is how these apply to your wall décor.
