The Post-Impressionists 5 Week Course Be inspired and intrigued each week as we look in-depth at the world of the Post-Impressionists as well as some of the works they created. At a time when we are becoming less engaged with each other, and in a world where the virtual is taking over from the real and experienced, exploring biographies of great artists helps to re-engage us with character and with uniqueness – qualities which enhance our minds and lives. The Post- Impressionist artists each established their own unique style but were united by a shared intention to change the appearance of art established by the French Impressionists. This course will look at the work of Cezanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Seurat and others, following both the ideas behind their work as well as their artistic styles and approaches. Rejecting the naturalistic colours and light established by the Impressionists, this group of artists discovered new techniques and approaches which turned away from accurate perspectival space and depth opting for distorted perspective or blocks of colour which sought to capture the new ideas emerging about perception. We will also consider this movement in the broader historical and philosophical context of the changes occurring in Europe at the time. There will be time for participation and discussion.
