A term meaning "after" that is prefixed to some art terms such as Post-Impressionism, Post-Minimalism and Post-Modern. However, these terms are handy primarily to suggest a time line and not to suggest a unity of style amongst the artists to whom the terms are applied. Even if the artists do share a rebellion against a preceding movement, they often have approaches independent of each other. Included among the Post-Impressionists, each with a unique style, are Paul Cezanne, Georges Seurat, Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gaughin. However, they did share determination to inject identifiable objects and or figures into their work rather than be confined to the strictures of Impressionism. Usage of the word "post" linked to fine art began in the early 20th century and like the term "neo" can be deceptive in that it suggests "a linear but not necessarily accurate vision of history . . . (It can) "obscure, rather than enhance, the understanding of art." Source: Robert Atkins, "ARTSPEAK"
