From Evan Puschak, this explanation of how art went from almost fully representational painting to abstract impressionism in about 100 years is a 6-minute whirlwind tour of modern art, from Édouard Manet to Jackson Pollock's drip paintings. I always love when Puschak dips back into art...the first video of ever posted of his was about Jacques-Louis David's The Death of Socrates.
