Modern and Contemporary Art
The roots of modern and contemporary art can be found in the late 19th century. Impressionism and Postimpressionism are the starting point for the 20th century and posterior movements. Among the historical vanguards, the most important are fauvism, expressionism, cubism, futurism, constructivism, neoplasticism, dadaism, and surrealism. All of them have a series of common elements in their ideology, but not in their aesthetic nor their style. Today many museums, galleries, and art collectors are tasked with finding contemporary pieces endorsed by a certification of authenticity.
