Impressionists artists opened the door to a new world of modern art. The Post-Impressionists wanted to continue to stretch the boundaries. The Post Impressionists began with a new group of artists that lasted between l885-l910. They learned about using light, shadows and colors in their art from the Impressionists. Their own ideas began by using new subjects, techniques, perspectives and shapes to express their thoughts and emotions in art.
Impressionism began around l873 with artists like Monet, Degas, Cezanne and Morisot. Impressionism as a new generaton of artists began using lighter brush strokes, brighter colors and less attention to details, emphasis on landscapes and everyday life. They were thought they eccentrics.
