Most art historians agree that the modern art adventure first  developed in the 1860s in Paris. A circle of painters, whom we now know  as Impressionists, began painting pictures with rapid, loose brushwork.  They turned to everyday street life for subjects, instead of overblown  heroic scenes, and they escaped the power of the Salon by organizing  their own independent exhibitions.  After this first assault on the  artistic establishment, there was no holding back. In a constant desire  to challenge, innovate, and inspire, one modernist style supplanted the  next: Symbolism, Expressionism, Futurism, Dada, abstract art, renewed  Realism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop, Minimal and conceptual  practice.
