Most influential people from the Art and Entertainment World of the 20th century according to Time 100. In the first two decades of the century, Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky and James Joyce, the advanced squad of modernism, created works that dramatically broke with the past, destroying traditional artistic structures and reassembling them in surprising new ways.
The upheaval of World War I only reinforced the modernists' conviction that the moral and cultural heritage of the West had collapsed. All that was left, in TS Eliot's vision, was a wasteland crying out for creative renewal. For Virginia Woolf, what had happened was more fundamental even than geopolitics or culture. Looking back at 1924, she concluded that "in December 1910 or around that date, human character changed."
As early as 1900, Guglielmo Marconi had worked out the fundamentals of radio. The phonograph was fast becoming the foundation of a recording industry. In 1912, 5 million Americans each day attended a new entertainment called movies. New Orleans echoed with sounds that blended gloriously like jazz. The people of Tin Pan Alley were polishing the wit and lighthearted lyricism of pop song and revamping the European operetta into an original form of American theater: the musical.
No previous century had seen such a powerful interplay between the arts and technology. You have to go back to the invention of the printing press in the 1450s to find something comparable.
Now, seemingly overnight, machines and electronics were transforming just about everything. Photography, a major invention of the 19th century, was almost turned into a different medium in the 1920s and 1930s with the combination of high-quality portable cameras, advanced roll film, and the flash.
