Game Changers: Visual and Performing Artists from Impressionism to Modernism

At the turn of the 20th century, innovative ways of thinking and behavior drove painters, choreographers, and composers to find new means of expression. Between 1880 and 1930, long-standing traditions were challenged. Changes in government, national identity, wars, science, mechanics, technology, and fashion were reflected by numerous “isms” (impressionism, expressionism, primitivism, cubism, surrealism, symbolism, neo-classicism, modernism) which broke into the arts. Among the game changers of this period were Debussy, Ravel, Monet, Renoir, Van Gogh, Diaghalev, Stravinsky, Picasso, Schoenberg, Kandinsky, and the new popular style of jazz. As we view artwork and listen to musical compositions, we will examine the lives and influences of these artists who moved from Romanticism to Modernism.
