Aspects of Art in 20th Century
Since the beginning of the 20th century, it is impossible to ignore that art has been changing drastically. It is impossible to overlook the fact that art has moved away from the conventions set by the renaissance back in the 14th century, and has changed from non-ephemeral, to an Ephemeral state. (Baxendall M, 1972) Throughout the 20th century, art has been progressively moving away from pictorial representations, sculpture, and visual observation, giving birth to an Avant-garde era. During these period, different artists tried to expand their understanding of art, and thus begun a search for new directions that could challenge the meaning of art at the time. Such challenge introduced extreme alterations to the world of art.
