Here is a chart of the evolution of early 20th Century modern art, as represented by Mr. Alfred H. Barr, Director of the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), from 1929-43. It is an example of data visualization, art deco-styled, during a time when art deco was not retro, but very current. It is also unusual by virtue of its subject matter. This is not merely an aesthetically appealling graphical image. It is artful data visualizaton, whose subject matter is also art!
I would like to consider this more than an infographic, although I am admittedly on thin ice. However, this is a flow chart representing the evolution and associated taxonomy stucture used to categorize the inception of Modern Art as many of us think of it, as Cubism and Abstract schools developed after the post-Impressionism that ended around the time of World War I. It demonstrates how each independent style was a reaction to past style. Excerpts from Alfred H. Barr’s catalogue for the exhibition “Cubism and Abstract Art at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1936”, see www.madamelamb.com for source data and further details of exhibit.
