A term coined in 1910 by the English art critic and painter Roger Fry and applied to the reaction against the naturalistic depiction of light and color in Impressionism. Though Paul Cézanne, Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh, and Georges Seurat each developed their own distinctive styles, they were unified by an interest in expressing their emotional and psychological responses to the world through bold colors and expressive, often symbolic images. Post-Impressionism can be roughly dated from 1886 to 1905.
