    Season 2:

    With the emergence of Secession and Art Nouveau, art movements continued to break away from the traditions of the official academies. Avant-garde exhibitions in Vienna by Gustav Klimt and the French Fauve movement led by Henri Matisse caused great controversy, as did Expression in Northern Europe. Pablo Picasso played such an important part in the development of modern art with ` Les Demoiselles d`Avignon ` and the revolutionary art movement, Cubism. The chaos of World War 1 and the Russian Revolution ended this period with the further shattering of conventional ideas in painting and sculpture.
