'Sleeping_Muse',_bronze_sculpture_by_Constantin_Brancusi,_1910,_Metropolitan_Museum_of_ArtModern sculpture is generally considered to have begun with the work of Auguste Rodin, who is seen as the progenitor of modern sculpture. While Rodin did not set out to rebel against the past, he created a new way of building his works; paving the way to the future. “Rodin dissolved the hard outline of contemporary Neo-Greek academicism, and thereby created a vital synthesis of opacity and transparency, volume and void.” Along with a few other artists in the late 19th century who experimented with new artistic visions in sculpture like Edgar Degas, and Paul Gauguin, Rodin invented a radical new approach in the creation of sculpture. Modern sculpture along with all modern art, “arose as part of Western society’s attempt to come to terms with the urban, industrial and secular society that emerged during the nineteenth century”.
Modernist sculpture movements include Art Nouveau, Cubism, Geometric abstraction, De Stijl, Suprematism, Constructivism, Dadaism, Surrealism, Futurism, Formalism Abstract expressionism, Pop-Art, Minimalism, Postminimalism, Land art, Conceptual art, and Installation art among others.
