  1. 1. Post-Impressionism By Beverly Roman
  2. 2. Post Impressionism - 1880's to 1900 <ul><li>Post-Impressionism is a term used to describe a variety of artists who were influenced by Impressionism but took it to other levels </li></ul><ul><li>There is no single style of Post-Impressionism, but generally it is less idyllic and more emotionally charged than Impressionism </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>“ Post-Impressionism is the term coined by the British artist and art critic Roger Fry in 1910 to describe the development of French art since Manet. Post-Impressionists extended Impressionism while rejecting its limitations: they continued using vivid colors, thick application of paint, distinctive brushstrokes and real-life subject matter, but they were more inclined to emphasize geometric forms, to distort form for expressive effect, and to use unnatural or arbitrary color.” </li></ul>
  4. 4. Post Impressionism Artists <ul><li>Paul Gauguin </li></ul><ul><li>Paul Cezanne </li></ul><ul><li>Vincent van Gogh </li></ul><ul><li>George Seurat </li></ul>
  5. 5. Paul Cezanne <ul><li>Paul Cezanna set out to restore a sense of order and structure to painting, to &quot;make of Impressionism something solid and durable, like the art of the museums&quot;. He achieved this by reducing objects to their basic shapes while retaining the bright fresh colours of Impressionism </li></ul>
  6. 6. Still Life of Peaches and Pears
  7. 7. The Smoker

  10. 11. Paul Gauguin <ul><li>Pissarro, his friend and mentor, told him “look for the nature that suits your temperament” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Gauguin's art has all the appearance of a flight from civilization, of a search for new ways of life, more primitive, more real and more sincere.” </li></ul>

  12. 13. The Market Gardens of Vaugirard
  13. 14. George Seurat <ul><li>“ Seurat was not just interested in the way that the colors were put onto the painting or the painting itself. He was mostly concentrating on the science in the picture and the optical mixing of the colors” </li></ul>
