Post-Impressionists were dissatisfied with the trivial subject matter and loss of structure in Impressionist painting. Seurat and his followers became Pointillists, systematically using tiny dots of color. Cezanne sought to restore a sense of order and structure by reducing objects to basic shapes while retaining the saturated colors of Impressionism. Van Gogh used vibrant color and thick impasto to convey his state of mind. Post-Impressionism was not a singular, unified movement.
The Post-Impressionists were a diverse mixture of artists, each expressing their dissatisfaction with Impressionism in their own ways. Georges Seurat and his followers practiced Pointillism, combining tiny colored dots sometimes numbering in the thousands. Paul Cezanne used saturated colors to render the simple geometric shapes he believed could be used to make up any image. Vincent Van Gogh's impasto brushwork and discerning eye for color theory served him well in expressing his own state of mind. Although they often exhibited together, Post-Impressionist artists were as diverse as can be.
The paintings I received were exceptional in quality and the service staff were more than helpful with helping me arrange my orders. Will buy more in the future!
I ordered this painting to hang above the bed in the bedroom. It is more gorgeous than on the screen. The gold and the colors are so vibrant, the passion of this painting is amazing. Absolutely love my purchase. Arrived quickly and nicely packed with no damage. Very happy with my purchase!
The quality of the piece we ordered was nothing short of perfect, it is perfect quality and will be the center of our dining room for years to come!
Gorgeous painting. Lots of texture. Gold foil on the luxury line adds a great effect. Highly recommended.
This is outstanding. Not only does it have the gorgeous gold foiled accents, but the texture and amount of paint on the canvas is absolutely superb. Brush strokes look amazing, colors are vivid. This is a real treat in my kitchen area. Falling in love with each order I make, but this one has really caught my attention.
This looks gorgeous in our home. Goes well in every room we tested it in.
I have just ordered my fourth piece from overstockart.com and each piece was beautiful. The service department goes overboard to make sure that I was happy with my Art and the price, to me, is a steal. I just moved into a new home and their art stands with the best of the original art that I have. I would highly recommend them. If you are not happy; they will make it right.
I have recently purchased 2 pieces of art, "Flaming June" and "the Fisherman and the Siren" from OverstockArt and I could not be happier. I felt the prices was very fair, the shipping was perfect and the quality of the paintings left me speechless. Such a good experience that it pushes me to acquire more art from you. Thank you, OverstockArt!
I bought a Van Gogh, Hopper, and Monet as gifts and they all turned out beautifully. I was anxious that the quality would be not be as promised, but the paintings I received were very similar to the images presented on the website. I would recommend this service.
The product far exceeds my expectations. It's beautiful. The shipping was prompt and the item even though large was wrapped very tightly to avoid damage. I'm thrilled and will be purchasing again. The color in painting is vivid and beautiful. Looks like the artist came to my home and painted it. Thank you OverstockArt
