was one of the most impressive painters of the
Post-Impressionist art movement. He lived
the life of a decadent bohemian in the Parisian district of Montmartre.
The Post-Impressionism movement directly followed Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism. Nearly all Post-Impressionist artists began as Impressionists, but then rejected recording light and color changes. The Post- Impressionists showed a greater concern for individuality, pure color, organization and form. Vincent van Gogh once said "It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures."
