Post-Impressionists by Belinda Thomson

Book Description

The term 'Post-Impressionist' was coined in 1910, to describe the work of the French painters of the 1880s and 90s - principally Cezanne, Gauguin and Van Gogh - but has never been a satisfactory label. In this lively survey and sophisticated reappraisal of a period of avant-garde experimentation, many minor as well as major artists are discussed and illustrated. By concentrating on what the artists and contemporary critics did and said, and by looking at what the artists painted, the author raises very sharply the question of what 'Post-Impressionism' means and reveals a fascinating glimpse of personal rivalry, commercial pressures, individual initiatives and shifting allegiances - and no simple pattern at all.

Books By Author Belinda Thomson

Gauguin by Belinda Thomson Gauguin, Hardback (October 2010)

The vivid, unnaturalistic colors and bold outlines of Gauguin's paintings and the strong, semiabstract quality of his woodcuts had a profound effect on the development of twentieth-century art. This is a reevaluation of Paul Gauguin that presents the artist and his work in an entirely new light.

Van Gogh Paintings by Belinda Thomson Van Gogh Paintings, Hardback (January 2007)

Explores various paintings in the context of Van Goghs short but brilliant career, allying the works to his correspondence.

Impressionism by Belinda Thomson Impressionism, Paperback (October 2000)

An accessible and thoughtful account examining the factors and experiences that allowed Impressionism to develop when and how it did. The author draws upon recently discovered documents, critical reviews and letters between artists, writers and dealers.
