Post-Impressionism

Post-Impressionism is an art movement that developed throughout Europe, mainly in France, roughly between 1856 to 1905. It was a response to traditional Impressionism, which many artists felt took light and color too literally. As a result, a lot of Post-Impressionist work can be recognized by unnatural, vibrant colors and distorted forms to emphasize the essence of the subject matter.

There were many different styles of Post-Impressionism, but Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cezanne, and George Seurat are few of the most notable Post-Impressionists.
