What happened after Impressionism? What did it lead to? From Seurat's's Pointillism in the 1880s to the expressive use of color by the Fauves in the early 1900s, to Post-Impressionist artists-- Cezanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Matisse, Munch and more-- artists were constantly experimenting with new forms, techniques and subject matter in a varied and ambivalent reaction to Impressionism. With liberal quotations from artists, writers and critics, Bernard Denvir brings Post-Impressionism to life: the different artistic groupings, the effects of contemporary writing, music and politics, the influence of Japanese art and "primitive" sculpture, and the spread of artistic practice into printmaking. 148 illus., 24 in color.
