Vincent Van Gogh created post-impressionist works such as 'Starry Night', 'Irises in the Garden', and 'Sunflowers on Gold', which are still popular to this day. These works used the vibrant colors typical of Impressionist art, but intensified them. His works are full of his own personal impressions, the emotions and process, that he underwent in order to create it, and art enthusiasts are still amazed by the passion present in most of his paintings. This subjective viewpoint wasn't shared in Impressionistic art, which was concerned with how light interacted with the eye in order to give an 'impression' of an object.
Rousseau also used the bright colors of Impressionism in his works, but added a distinct sense of motion and energy to his works. One of the prime examples of Rousseau's style was in his work, 'The Centenary of Independence'. This painting depicts brightly colored, flat artwork that focuses on energetic shapes and lines. The painting accurately portrays the delight of the dancers, the magnetism of movement, and the joy of the occasion in a way that a more realistic style wouldn't capture.
People around the world have been fascinated by post-impressionist artwork, and they are still widely used for decoration around the home today.
