Post-Impressionism. French art movement that immediately followed Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism. It rejected the emphasis the Impressionists put on naturalism and the depiction of fleeting effects of light, and was characterized by a greater concern for expression, structure and form. The work of Vincent van Gogh is a good example.

"Irises" (1889) Vincent van Gogh
