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.
I recently discovered this company and have already purchased several pieces with the intent of buying more in the near future. Having been a manager of a fine art gallery, I know exceptional artwork when I see it and overstockArt has beautiful offerings.
I've purchased quite a few reproductions and always had great pieces arrive. This last purchase however there was ever so slight damage to the top of the frame. I called and it was picked up by FedEx the next day. Very kind, professional, and easy process. Thank you, I'll continue to order my art through you folks!
We ordered the Luxury Line version of Van Gogh's Cafe Terrace and we love it! It's well done, retaining the details of the original but with a little added flair from the gold paint on the stars and windows. If I didn't know better, I would swear this painting adds light to our room at night. I'm very happy with this purchase!
I love overstockArt. I have purchased 5 paintings from them over the years and love them all. Beautiful work, great prices, and quality customer service.
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.
