The roots of modern art can be traced back to the middle of the nineteenth century, with the major breakthroughs taking place in the early part of the twentieth century. Artists like Kandinsky and Picasso did much to make the most forceful breaks with tradition which are the epitome of what modern art stands for.
Modern art as painting was taken a step further in the middle of the twentieth century when the American Abstract Expressionists effectively removed the remaining boundaries in terms of what most people understood about the subject and form of paintings. The geographical centre of the modern art movement moved to New York at this time, after being centred on Paris for most of the earlier years.
