Post Impressionism 1885-1910 BACK

This term was coined by the art critic Roger Fry. Post Impressionism is not actually a movement and the term vaguely signifies the works by painters who retained the shimmering effects of light and the outdoor palette but who preferred more formal compositions.

Painters now understood that what we see depends on how we see, and even more when we see: the 'objective view' is in fact subject to both perception and time. Cezanne wrestled with this idea, and understood as no artist before him ever had, the personal need of the artist to respond to what he saw and make a visual and enduring image of its wayward and multi-dimensional beauty.

Paul Cezanne 1839-1906

Vincent van Gogh 1853-1890

Paul Gauguin 1848-1903
