Post-Impressionism spanned from the end of the 19th century and into the early years of the 20th century by painters such as Paul Gauguin, Georges Seurat, and, most famously Vincent van Gogh. These predominately Dutch and French painters took impressionism much further than their predecessors, using techniques such as unnatural lighting and painting unrealistic looking scenes by using bold and bright colours, often to express the feelings, passions, and emotions of the artist.
A few of the most famous pieces of post impressionist art include The Potato Eaters by Vincent van Gogh, created in 1885, Haying at Eragny by Camille Pissarro in 1889, The Artist's Room painted by Maximillien Luce in 1878, and the world famous The Starry Night, also painted by Vincent van Gogh in 1889.
The post impressionism art movement stretched into the early 20th century but by the outbreak of the First World War in 1914 post impressionism had faded from popularity, only to be replaced by new, unique and different art movements.
