Origin of modern art paintings
Modern art paintings were only first made in the early 20th century. Before this period, artists had to strictly adhere to rules when they were commissioned, but this was met with increasing resistance towards the end of the 19th century. Artists wanted more freedom to make what they like. This gave rise to the tendency to experiment more, creating a distance between the observable reality and the work of art itself. Various movements have arisen from this, such as Cubism, Futurism, Dadaism and Surrealism.
Characteristic of modern art paintings is that works of art were no longer made according to rules. An appearance that arose was the abstract, non-figurative art. Objects from the natural world were deliberately not shown. Instead, different shapes and materials were used, while experimenting with how you can still convey a certain emotion.
There were several ways to express what the artists saw or felt. For example, you could greatly exaggerate with colors, or use shapes that did not correspond at all to what the artist saw.
