What does the name of this movement tell you?
- Other than being defined by working in the time immediately after Impressionism, they did not have a lot in common
- They were not a united group of artists achieving one goal, but individual artists developing their own artistic expressions
Where?
Also in France
When?
1880-1905, after Impressionism had established itself as an accepted movement after 'academic' art such as Romanticism and Realism
Who?
Paul Cezanne, Georges Seurat,
Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh
The Post-Impressionists
Their explorations were made possible by their forerunners’ breakthroughs.

However, they were dissatisfied with the unsubstantial quality of Impressionist artworks, its rushed and hurried nature made it seem slapdash and unplanned
Looking beyond...
From these responses grew 20th-century art:
- Movements such as Cubism and Expressionism
P.S.
When you see this at the end of a letter that someone has written to you, what does it mean?
Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent tried to be an art dealer, a
teacher,
and an assistant
minister
before becoming an artist.
Vincent was
27
years old when he became an artist.
Vincent was only active as an artist for
1o
years from
1880
to
1890.
Vincent had no formal art
education.
The three artists Vincent came into contact with and was influenced by are: Claude
Monet,
Paul
Gauguin
and Paul
Signac.
Vincent developed into a true master, with an entirely unique painting
style.
The
expressive
brushstrokes and clear, bright
colours
of his paintings inspired and influenced many other artists, such as Pablo
Picasso.
Much of what we know of Vincent's background comes from the hundreds of
letters
he wrote, mostly to his brother,
Theo.

Bold exploration and experimentation of bright colour
Wanted to escape European society and so went to Tahiti to paint the different lifestyle

Constructed planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields
Simplified naturally occuring forms to geometric essentials
Sought to “reproduce nature in terms of the cylinder and the sphere and the cone.”

Founder of pointilism: using small, deliberate dabs of paint to create form and complex colour
Scientific approach to using colour in creating harmony
Painting style resulted in idyllic landscapes with sculptural figures
