Collection: Post-Impressionism

Post-Impressionism was a French art movement that emerged in the late 19th century as a reaction against the limitations of Impressionism. It was characterized by a greater emphasis on the individual artist's subjective experience and a rejection of Impressionism's emphasis on the fleeting effects of light and atmosphere.Post-Impressionist artists sought to capture the essence of their subjects through a variety of techniques, including the use of bold, intense colors and the distortion of form. The movement included artists such as Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, and Paul Gauguin, each of whom developed their own distinct style.Post-Impressionism had a significant impact on the development of modern art, influencing many later movements such as Fauvism and Cubism. Its legacy can be seen in the work of many modern artists who continue to explore new ways of representing the world through their art..
