Post-Impressionism: (1885 - 1905) The Post Impressionist period came when several former Impressionist painters became dissatisfied with  the movements insistence on light and color. The post-Impressionists aspired to fine more depth in the  roles of color, form and solidity in painting. Post Impressionism was a continuation of the Impressionist movement, but rejected the limitations of its  predecessor. The terms was first used by English art critic Roger Fry describing the work of painters such  as Paul Cezanne, Georges Seurat, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec  among others. The term does not define a singular style or approach, it encompasses all artists that  whose main goal was to express more than a visual interpretation. Their aim was to portray emotion and  intellect in addition to imagery.
