The artists described as Post-Impressionists were not a distinct movement though they both built off and rejected the ideas of the Impressionists. Post-Impressionists artists worked in styles such as pointillism, fauvism, and cubism.

Paul Cézanne
b. 1-19-1839; Aix-en-Provence, France
d. 10-22-1906; France

Revolutionary French Post-Impressionist painter Paul Cezanne’s rebellion against 19th century Impressionist conventions sparked the radical new world of 20th century modern art.

Although he was ridiculed by critics at the time, both Picasso, Matisse, and many others cite him as an influence and accolades came post-humously. His experimentation with optical perception, geometric simplification and fractured forms, kept his style changing significantly over his lifetime. An eccentric genius, Cezenne was a solitary enigma to those who knew him best, including his own family.

Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro considered himself a mentor to Cézanne.

Paul Gauguin
b. 6-7-1848; Paris
d. 1903; French Polynesia

Paul Gauguin was so profoundly impacted by his discovery of Impressionist art that he left his successful stockbroker career, and family, to pursue it.

He lived as the proverbial ‘starving artist’, inventing a style he called “Synthetism” which became a “Post-Impressionist form of modern art symbolized by nature through primitive subjects, massive simplified forms and bright color planes”.

Gauguin’s escape from civilization is echoed in his work done in Tahiti, his signature style of flat forms and vibrant colors expressing untamed, primitive nature.

Poster text: At the Moulin Rouge' is one of about 30 of Toulouse-Lautrec's illustrations of the famous Paris music hall. In the painting you can see Toulouse-Lautrec seated in the backgroung among his friends.

Few artists were more independent than Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. He kept abreast of all that was new in art, yet he followed no trends. Today, his name is synonymous with brightly colored posters and paintings of the “Belle Epoque” — the exciting whirl of social life that brought the 19th century in Europe to a close. Surrounded by costumed dancers, socialites, and the steamy night life of Paris, Lautrec observed all with an absolutely steady and dispassionate eye.

Lautrec was born in Albi in 1864 to parents of French nobility. At age nine he moved with his family to Paris, where he began his studies and showed an early talent for drawing. At age 14, he broke both thighs and contracted a bone disease that stunted his growth and left him permanently crippled. As an adult, his physical deformity and his love of flashy clothes made him an oddly striking figure. Lautrec was especially drawn to Montmartre, an ill-famed Paris district lined with bars, cafes, dance-halls, and theaters — a pleasure-seeker’s haven. He often used garish colors and grotesque exaggerations to convey the qualities of artifice and excitement that he saw in this atmosphere.

Line — not light or color — was the vehicle of Lautrec’s artistic genius. He could capture, in a few quick strokes of the pen or brush, the movement and atmosphere of an entire scene. A good example is his poster Jane Avril at the Jardin de Paris, produced in 1893. This uncluttered, linear style showed the strong influence of Japanese art. He diluted his oil paint strongly with turpentine, giving a pure, bright sheen to his colors. These paints applied in broad, sweeping strokes often allowed the buff color of his canvas or poster board to show through.

In later life, Lautrec’s sociable personality changed. He drank to excess and was repeatedly hospitalized for delirium brought on by alcoholism. He died in 1901 of an illness related to his alcoholism.
