The Post Impressionists: Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh was an artist for only a few years of his short life, but he has become one of the most well-known and beloved artists of the late 19th century. Born in Holland, he worked as an art dealer and missionary, but after moving to Paris in 1886, he developed into a tremendous painter. Join Ann Shifflet to discuss how van Gogh assimilated the loose brushwork and interest in color of the Impressionists, and how he integrated them into unique, extraordinary works by also portraying his thoughts and feelings in his art.

The Post-Impressionists: Georges Seurat

Although his career was cut short by an early death, Seurat achieved much in the late 1800’s. He studied the Impressionists and devised a new style called Neo-Impressionism or Pointilism. Like the Impressionists, Seurat’s work often depicts the world around him, but his almost scientific approach to painting is unique and still fascinating today. We will look at his well-known works such as “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of the Grand Jatte,” and discuss how his interest in color theory influenced him artistically.

Ann Shifflet, instructor from the Columbus College of Art and Design is the presenter.
