POST-IMPRESSIONISM Done by Natalya Timasheva Post-Impressionism is a whole a term coined by the British artist and art critic Roger Fry in 1914, to describe the development of European art since Monet. It’s roughly the period between 1886 and 1892 to describe the artistic movements based on or derived from Impressionism. The term is now taken to mean those artists who followed the Impressionists and to some extent rejected their ideas. Generally, they considered Impressionism too casual or too naturalistic, and sought a means of exploring emotion in paint.
POST-IMPRESSIONISM Differences between Impressionism And Post-Impressionism: Impressionists focused on reproducing the natural world but lost the use of line, shape and color (only reflected) Post-Impressionists wanted to restore color and shape to art, while others wanted to restore subjectivity rather than painting from nature. The P.I. created abstract versions of reality to reinforce that art is DIFFERENT from nature (breaking with the tradition since the Renaissance)

POST-IMPRESSIONISMHenri de Toulouse-Lautrec Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec ” At the Moulin Rouge” French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec Art Institute of Chicago. 1895 (1864-1901) was interested in capturing the sensibility of modern life and deeply admired Degas. Because of this interest and admiration, his work intersects with that of the Impressionists. However, his work has an added satirical edge to it and often borders on caricature. Toulouse-Latutrec’s art was, to a degree, the expression of his life. He reveled in the energy of cheap music halls, cafes, and bordellos. In “At the Moulin Rouge’, the influences of Degas, of the Japanese print, and of photography can be seen in the oblique and asymmetrical composition, the spatial diagonals, and the strong line patterns with added dissonant colors.
