Post-Impressionist Fine Art

The emergence of the Post-Impressionist Movement occurred during the late 19th century, marked by artists who, dissatisfied with the confines of Impressionism, forged unique artistic styles. The Post-Impressionists were influenced by the Impressionists’ use of vivid colors, broken brushstrokes and modern subjects, but they also experimented with new techniques, forms and expressions. Through this new art movement, they aimed to convey more than just the visual appearance of reality, but also their personal emotions, ideas and visions.

The Post-Impressionists were not a unified movement, but rather a diverse and independent group of artists who pursued their own artistic goals and interests. Some of them, such as Paul Cézanne and Georges Seurat, focused on the structure and composition of their paintings, using geometric shapes and contrasting colors to create a sense of depth and harmony. Others, such as Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin, emphasized the expressive and symbolic aspects of their paintings, using bold colors, distorted forms and exotic motifs to convey their feelings and fantasies. This shift is evident in pieces like van Gogh's Starry Night and Gauguin's Arearea, which showcase their mastery in using color to convey deep emotional narratives. The Post-Impressionists and their works, now considered best sellers in the realm of fine art, had a profound impact on the development of modern art, inspiring movements such as Cubism, Expressionism, Fauvism and Surrealism. The French Impressionist origins gave way to a broader Post Impressionism approach, where artists like Henri Matisse, the father of Fauvism, further pushed the boundaries of painting. His influence is still prevalent in various modern art forms, including pop art and canvas prints. His art prints are highly sought after for both home decor and wall art, reflecting their timeless appeal.
