can u explain this

Comment by memoirs of Chennai/Madras city

I’m not an art historian, but I’ll try. It shows how various schools of thought in art affected / gave birth to successive schools during the course of the modern art movement. It seems the curves are schools and the squares are outside influences. At the bottom the poster shows how by 1935 a distinct split was established between geometrical art and non geometrical art.

Also it’s a beautiful well designed poster – artistic in its own right.
