Inspiration to the Artist
Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life.
What is Post-Impressionism style?
Post-Impressionism is a predominantly French art movement that developed roughly between 1886 and 1905, which was from the last Impressionist exhibition up to the birth of Fauvism. The movement emerged as a reaction against Impressionism and its concern for the naturalistic depiction of light and color.
What was the Post-Impressionism Movement?
Post-impressionism, like the Impressionism Art Movement  is considered to be one of the earliest avant-garde movements of the 19th century. The concerns of the major and most influential painters and sculptures that helped to create the impressionism style produced the works that focused on the investigation of the perception of the eye, the presentation of the shifting nature of light, and the depictions of the everyday life in the streets, parks, cafés, and bars. But, what is Post-Impressionism? Following from the predecessors of the Impressionism movement, Post-Impressionism was the next generation of the avant-garde artists that took a variety of different approaches, but what glued them together was their rejection of the focus on the opticality of the Impressionism movement. Emerging as a reaction against the Impressionists’ concern for the naturalistic depiction of light and color, Post-impressionism artists fought to bring back the focus on the subject matter and the structure in paintings that they felt was lost. Dominated by the immense personalities, such as Paul Gauguin, Paul Cézanne, Georges Seurat, Vincent van Gogh, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the Post-impressionism artists took different approaches and continued building on the advances of the previous art movement.
