This early to mid-20th century school of painting is characterized by elegantly stylized abstraction. Modernism embraced the intellectualism and architecture of its time. Its influences may be readily discerned in the furnishings and clothing designs of that era, extending to the present. New Mexico was a bastion of important Modernist painting. Some famous artists visited and worked here, and several important ones took up residence.
