French art movement that immediately followed Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism. The artists involved showed a greater concern for expression, structure and form than did the Impressionist artists. Building on the works of the Neo-Impressionists,the limitations that the Post-Impressionists saw were basically founded in the Impressionists concern and devotion to naturalism and the momentary effects of lighting. Post-Impressionists, while also preoccupied with the uses of color, were seeking both a more expressive use of color and like Georges Seurat, a somewhat scientific analysis of color.

The term was coined by the British art critic and painter, Roger Fry (1866-1934), on the occasion of an exhibit of works by these artists, which he curated in 1910 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
