Traditional Art vs. Modern Art
Traditional Art Traditional art is cultural artwork. Traditional artists work organically within a community. These artists learn informally from someone that is in their community. Traditional art can also be named folk art. Since Traditional art did not have to be "art" it could have been a tattooed bamboo pipe or a calendar stick. Traditional art is not only folk art but is like a painting. This type of Traditional art focuses on realistic things but sometimes mythical. This kind of Traditional art can also focus on religious things.
Modern Art Modern art is a style of a kind of artwork that extended around the1860s to the 1970s. Modern artists made artwork that were abstracted. Some modern art includes different colorful shapes or figures. Modern art can be reduced to three solids:cube,sphere,and cone. Modern art has different styles like analytic cubism and synthetic cubism. This kind of art is made up of different textures,surfaces,collage elements, papier collé and a large variety of merged subject matter.
The first chart shows only the pro and cons of Traditional art.

there are no rules in modern art
hard to explain the artwork
the traditions have been thrown aside
hard to find the meanings of the artwork
they are not realistic
The top 5 Traditional artworks are:
The Mona Lisa
The Last Supper
Girl with a pearl earring

Both of these types of art have different good things about them. Traditional art stays within the rules. But, Modern art goes all the wayout and breaks the boundaries of art. I personally like Traditional art better. Traditional art is my style. This is just my opinion. Which type of art do you like better? Now it is your time to choose which is better. Traditional art and Modern art are both good but I prefer

Historic vs. Modern: Which Type of Building is Right for You?
Selling Points of Historic Buildings
The most obvious difference between historic and modern buildings is the general sense of character and aesthetics. There’s an undeniable romance to well-preserved historic architecture. Now, don’t go overboard in your daydreaming—if you hear “historic” and you start to have visions of living at Hogwarts, well, you’ll be sorely disappointed. But hardwood floors? Built-in bookshelves? Entirely possible (though, of course, no guarantees). Some older buildings may even have features like window seats, art-glass windows, or other architectural details that make you sigh, “They just don’t make ‘em like they used to.” As historic preservation aficionados like to say, it’s not good because it’s old, it’s old because it’s good.
Let’s repeat a statement above, this time with emphasis on the key words: There’s an undeniable romance to well-preserved historic architecture. . . . And there’s an undeniable agony to historic buildings that haven’t been updated in a generation or two—or that have been updated poorly, with all the woodwork stripped out, the fireplace Sheetrocked over, the stained-glass replaced by splotchy plywood. No, thanks. Old buildings often have old-building problems—drafty windows, faulty heating systems, funky room layouts that result in the oven in the living room and the bathroom accessible only through the coat closet. One person’s romantic eclecticism is another person’s worst nightmare.
Historic buildings also tend to be be smaller—not necessarily tiny, but almost certainly not skyscrapers. As we pointed out in the post comparing small and large buildings, fewer units means fewer neighbors, which has both its pros (closer-knit community) and its cons (maybe you don’t want a close-knit community!). And where there are small, historic buildings, there are likely to be other small, historic buildings—odds are good that it’s a long-established neighborhood with shops and restaurants and a distinct sense of place.
Selling Points of Modern Buildings
Modern buildings will have their own quirks, obviously, but a whole lot less of them—so if you want to do things the easy way, the newer the better.
Modern buildings are also more likely to have more (tangible) amenities. Think central air. Roomy showers with reliable hot water. Thoroughly modern kitchens with ample counter space and shiny new appliances. (Remodeled older apartments may have these, too.) These amenities don’t come free, though, so be prepared to pay higher rent.
Also keep in mind that many new highrise buildings are located in up-and-coming new neighborhoods, so you may have to deal with limited services until the neighborhood gets established. You may discover that grocery stores or dry cleaners are few, and your takeout options are scarce.
No matter what vintage your new apartment is, be sure to ask all the right questions. When you visit the unit prior to signing the lease, turn on the water and see how long it takes to warm up. Turn on the lights in each room. Ask what type of heating is used, how effective it is, and who pays the bills. If the building is historic, inquire about lead paint, asbestos, and other hazardous materials—they should have been abated, but it’s always best to ask. Look at the ceiling and see if there are any odd discolorations that could be water damage—and could, in turn, indicate bigger problems like leaky pipes or i
