1882-1915

Paul Cezanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin were the leading painters associated with the French art movement known as Post-Impressionism. This 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."
