After the decline of Impressionism, a wealth of European and American artists and movements start to appear not adhering to standard categories. In this seventh installment of our nine-part Art History series, we will explore the paths of the post-Impressionists and uncover the origins of modern architecture, sculpture, painting, and design.

Among styles and movements discussed are Art Nouveau, Fauvism, Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism, de Stijl, Dada, New Objectivity, Surrealism, and early movements of Abstraction. The stylistic and philosophical characteristic of each movement or individual are investigated and integrated into the broader framework of intellectual history.
