Modern Art in America

Modern art in america

Modern art was a popular style of painting between the 1860s and 1970s. New ideas for portraying themes in popular culture blossomed from such painters as Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and Henri Matisse. Their contribution to fresh and innovative ways of identifying with the world ushered in a new era of painting styles that still resonates with the generations of today.

On March 7, the Postal Service celebrated the contributions by artistic talent during this era through the unveiling of its Modern Art in America stamp collection. The series depicts 12 individual masterpieces from popular artists between 1912 and 1931. The stamp sheet also provides brief information on each artist and a quote from Marcel Duchamp.
