Innovation has always spurred artistic growth, and many themes, genres and styles can be traced back to a 'groundbreaking moment'. Drawing from more than 100 examples from classical antiquity to contemporary painting, this survey explores how great ideas by individual artists changed the history of art. There are the usual 'isms' such as Impressionism, Cubism and Abstract Expressionism, but also turning points in the depiction of the nude, still life, perspective, speed, dreams and the night.
