Modern art is the period extending roughly 110 years since 1860s, and denotes the style and philosophy.

The traditional painting schools were submerged in the revolution of economy, art and philosophy, because of the following three points that was concluded by Toperfect modern art gallery:
1, the confined creating techniques and intrinsic thoughts of traditional schools can no longer reflect human’s introspection on the great changes in economic and political fields of the real world.

3, photography and art modern printing dwarfed any realistic
painting on object.
