Similar to Impressionism in that... Artists still used bright colors that were often applied crudely. Obvious brush strokes and thick application of paint. Real-life subject matter.
Post Impressionism is different from Impressionism because... Not as cohesive as Impressionism, in that there were a few smaller "movements" and ideologies within P.I. More focus on feelings and emotions through artworks. Distorted forms instead of realistic forms in order to show emotion and expression. Use of unnatural or arbitrary (random) colors.
Styles within P.I. (some I made up :-) Pointilism: The use of tiny dots of color. Artists include: Georges Seurat, Georges Lemmen. Purer-Impressionism: Sort of a continuation of Impressionism but with more intention and thought (or so they said...) Feelings- and Emotions-based: a way of painting that conveyed a state of mind and showed emotion through the application of paint. Artists include: Van Gogh.
