The First Modern Era (The Early 20th Century). The Chaos of Confrontations

Keywords: the global art process, the main historical periods, the First Modern Era


The substance of the series of essays published by the journal lies in the fact that with utmost conciseness of presentation, it provides a summary
of the main phenomena of world artistic culture, covered in whole both from the point of view of the overall historical process, and in relation to various arts
(literature, the visual arts, architecture, music, theater and cinema). At the same time, the customary categorization according to the different national schools
and the division into the separate arts with the specification of genre intrinsic to each of them is surmounted, which meets
the positive tendencies of globalization and provides a holistic view of various artistic phenomena. An overview of the following artistic and historical periods
is conducted on a phased basis: the Ancient world, Antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Baroque Era, the Enlightenment, Romanticism, Post-
Romanticism, the First Modern Era, the Second Modern Era, the Third Modern Era, the Postmodern Era, and as an afterword —
“The Golden age of Russian Artistic Culture.”
