modern art

 
pronunciation:
ma drn art
part of speech: noun
definition: artistic production associated with a movement in art that began in the late 19th century and continued through the late 20th century, during which period an interest in realism and the use of traditional materials diminished and an interest in abstraction and experimentation with materials flourished.
These very abstract paintings are good examples of modern art.
