respond to the following post 100 words each Post 1 Politics instability at the turn of the century had great impact in the people’s daily lives and art. Because science was strong with the theories of Albert Einstein and other researchers, art and music became unrecognizable. As a result, the musicians and artists became directly influenced by the advances in science and “their blending of the scientific and the irrational, and of Western and non-Western styles, ed launch the disorienting revolution in ideas and creative expression that we now identify collectively as modernism” (Hunt, et. al, 806). Modernism was in a way, a break from realism and beginning of the new ideas and creative expression in art and literature (Hunt, et. al, 806). The  conflict between traditional values and new ideas was a turning point in arts in the late nineteenth century, were “modernism in the arts not only challenged time-honored standards but also led to an increase in competing artistic styles that continues today” (Hunt, et. al, 807). Across Europe artists expressed in their works frustrations that many felt with political instability at that time and “their style of portraying inner feelings—called expressionism—broke with middle-class optimism” (Hunt, et. al, 808).  Norwegian painter Edvard Munch in his painting “The Scream”(1893), “used twisting lines and a tortured skeletal human form to convey the horror of modern life that many artists perceived” (Hunt, et. al, 809). The only advanced art style that had success in the new era was the Art Nouveau or “new art”, where art designers manufactured in the new art style everything, starting from dishes to the entire buildings.
