The artists known as the Post-Impressionists—Georges Seurat, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Odilon Redon, and Edvard Munch—each rejected the tenets of Impressionist painting and created artworks in distinctly different styles. In addition to situating their art within the context of the late-19th-century’s political, philosophical, and cultural changes, this seminar will explore the individual careers and viewpoints of these artists, amplifying discussions with readings from each artist’s letters and statements.
Six sessions. E – $230, L – $253
