An exploration of Modernism and Abstraction in art, covering art related to the radical transformations of the 20th century, from emerging technologies to new political theories, and everything in between. It covers: early modernists such as Joseph Stella and Georgia O'Keefe who portrayed the dynamism of bridges and skyscrapers; Max Weber and Jan Matulka and their reactions to primitive African sculpture; and Stuart Davis who translated jazz into rhythmic composition and colour. The work of Cubist and Surrealist artists is also discussed in the accompanying text, as well as the heralded breakthrough into abstract art.
