An Impressionist painting is a window onto the world—fleeting, perhaps, but exquisite in its ability to capture a moment in time. Post-Impressionism arose in the late nineteenth century in response to the limitations of Impressionism’s objective recording of nature. Emotion, color, form—and abstract tendencies—came to define the Post-Impressionist period.Van Gogh, Matisse, Cézanne, Gauguin, Rousseau, and Seurat built upon the brilliant colors and brushwork of Impressionism. Working independently, each artist developed a distinct, identifiable style as seen in portraits, landscapes, and still lifes.These twelve paintings in this calendar are in the collection of the Barnes Foundation in Pennsylvania, established by Dr. Albert C. Barnes in 1922 to “promote the advancement of education and the appreciation of the fine arts.”All of Pomegranate’s calendars are printed with soy-based inks on FSC® certified paper, which means the paper has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ and manufactured by an FSC certified printer.
