POST-IMPRESSIONISM Term coined in 1910 for art that comes “after” Impressionism. Dissatisfied with merely transcribing or reproducing nature, Post- Impressionists sought to translate or interpret it, modifying their observations of nature by their personal feelings about it. Thus there is a shift from objectivity , where the impulse comes from the object , to subjectivity , where the impulse comes from the subject —that is, from the artist. Note Gauguin’s revealing statement that “I shut my eyes in order to see.”

POST-IMPRESSIONISM To simplify matters, it can be said that Post-Impressionism has two wings: • a “left wing,” comprising artists like Gauguin and Van Gogh, who found Impressionism unsatisfactory because it lacked emotion, imagination, and spirituality; and • a “right wing,” including Seurat and Cézanne, who found Impressionism unsatisfactory because it seemed to lack a sense of order, permanence, discipline, and timelessness.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
