AMICO Assignment Set:
Review Set for Modern Art, 1880-1945


This exercise, loosely based on H. H. Arnason’s History of Modern Art, is a general review of periods, terms, and styles related to early 20th-century modern art. It is designed as a mid- or end-of-term self-review for individual students working at their own computer terminals, but it could also be used as the basis for a classroom discussion.

The exercise covers:

  • Artistic movements from post-Impressionism to World War II.
  • Basic terminology and media relevant to the period.
  • Artistic styles, including the early and late styles of some major artists.
