The Golden Age of Russian Impressionism



Post Impressionism

Art Fortune | Post-Impressionism


Post Impressionism is the term used to describe the group of artist that adapted the style and technique of the Impressionist, however rejected the limitations. Impressionist used thick brush strokes, emphasized light, used ordinary subjects, and had a defiant use of movement in their paintings. Post Impressionist took these elements further, supporting an unusual use of color to convey emotion as well as movement, and allowed a sense of feeling to seep into their paintings by the distortion of objects. Art critic Roger Fry coined the term Post Impressionism in 1910, though the movement began in the late 19th century and carried into the early 20th century. The artist from the movement often showed together however worked independently.

Vincent van Gogh was a Dutch Post Impressionist artist who was under appreciated during his lifetime, but now is one of the most recognizable artists of all time. He portrayed his state of mind and feelings, through use of flowing brush strokes and strong unexpected colors. All his paintings have a deliberate sense of movement, and consciousness of emotion, such as in “Starry Night” and “Wheatfield with Crows.” Other notable Post Impressionist artists are Paul Cezanne, Paul Gauguin, and Henri Rousseau. This movement paved the way for Cubism, Primitivism, and Cloisonnism.
