Post-Impressionism
Post-Impressionist Artists:

Pierre Bonnard | Bonnard was a master of representing intimate interior landscapes, but he also created grand decorative paintings as well.

Paul Cézanne | Cézanne was an artistic innovator; his images of Mont Sainte-Victoire still retain their freshness and power, and each still life he painted is both a visual feast and a commentary on his genius.

Paul Gauguin | Often remembered for his fascination with Tahiti, Gauguin also created magnificent paintings that resonate with intense color and haunting beauty.

Vincent van Gogh | An artist famed for his writhing, energetic brush strokes, his magnificent depictions of sunflowers and the night sky, and his tormented personal life - van Gogh passionately lived his art.

Georges Seurat | Seurat is perhaps best known for his (pointillist) experiments in painting, the results of which were works such as Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec | This brilliant - and somewhat eccentric - artist captured the essence of Parisian night life at the end of the Nineteenth century.
