Modern art or “classical modernism“ begins with the 20th century. Modern art contains still the realistic figurative representation but also its rejection up to total abstraction. It is characterized by artistic experimentation and the rejection of the traditional use of colours and forms. The classical modernism includes different art styles as expressionism, cubismus or “New objectivity“.
This is a special form of the landscape painting. It contains the presentation of sea and coast. These pictures show ships, ports, sea battles, icebergs as well as coastal motifs like strands, beach chairs or breakwaters. Also animal pictures can be found in this category.
