Ryan Fessler ART 120 Chapter 21 Reflective Response The modern world of art really went through a dramatic change, as many people were disturbed, intrigued, and overwhelmed. I think that important historical factors had a major impact on art, such as the Industrial Revolution. This brought about new technological changes and developments, as well as art museums being built.
