Hi. I'm Koorosh Angali with angali.com. I'm going to explain to you what we consider modern art. Basically and generally speaking, the art which is produced between, roughly, 1860s to 1970s is referred to as modern art. One of the main characteristics of modern art is that it starts to look at the nature and the environment in a different manner than the previous artists, let's say the classical or traditional artists, used to look at these things. At this period, philosophy was more incorporated into art, to such an extent that when we get to Marcel LaChance work, the visual aspect of the art is dominated with the philosophy through which this art has been created, or to represent that this art has been created.
