Post-Impressionism

The impact that French Impressionism had on the art world was profound, and it set the stage for several of the influential and innovative modern masters that followed. Beginning in the late nineteenth century, several artists began to push the limits of Impressionism. Many elements of Impressionism were still considered relevant, including the use of intense color and brush strokes that reflected the character and mood of the painter. The Post-Impressionists continued to use these techniques, but sought to imbue their works with more compelling subjects, as well as a renewed focus on form and structure. The familiar names Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Georges Seurat all belong in this group. In general, these artists left behind the naturalism of Impressionism in favor of the scientific study of color. By introducing these elements, the seeds of modernist movements Fauvism, Cubism and German Expressionism were planted. When the paintings of the Post-Impressionists were first shown, a sensation occurred; today these works continue to be essential in the dialogue of modern art.

Latest Product Reviews

I've always had good results with Fredrix gallery wrapped canvas. Top quality at a good price.
- Deb in Oregon
I've had these brushes for awhile and can say they are the best brushes I have ever owned. I have been painting for a long time and have had brushes considered top of the line. I've tried a lot of them, and most have been a so-so feeling. Nothing really stood out. When I got these, the first thing I noticed was the balance. There is a feeling of great balance on these. The brush stands up to a lot, and is a real workhorse. They are go to brushes for straight lines and precision. The Dakotas are brushes that just don't disappoint.

These work nicely, they're cheap but quite good for storing and organizing pencils, their intended purpose.
