Post-Impressionists DVDs

The work and lives of six of the most famous and influential figures of the Post-Impressionist movement are examined in detail in this series from Kultur Films. Each film includes location footage, re-creations and reconstructions, studies of the respective artist's great works, plus commentary and analyses from leading authorities, art historians, and scholars.

DVD. 50 minutes each.

Cézanne — Paul Cézanne sought to capture the underlying structure of his subject matter. He is responsible for developing a revolutionary new approach to color and perspective. Often derided by the critics, Cézanne’s genius was starting to be recognized and appreciated in his final years. His influence on 20th century artists was so great that many refer to him as the "Father of Modern Painting."

Gauguin — Paul Gauguin was 35 when he decided to abandon his lucrative career as a Paris stockbroker and devote himself full time to painting. Known for his bold use of flat, unmixed color, this gave his paintings a strong sense of personal expression. However, his work was not well accepted initially. Poverty and obscurity dominated Gauguin’s years as an artist. The paintings that he created after moving to Tahiti are now recognized as masterpieces of the Post-Impressionist age.

Munch — This film explores the haunting images created by Norwegian painter Edvard Munch. Best known for his painting entitled The Scream, Munch’s darkly themed works were largely influenced by the deaths of his mother and sister from tuberculosis.

Rousseau — Rousseau painted in his spare time (when he wasn’t working at his job as a customs official). Though he had no formal training, he was convinced of the greatness of his art. He was criticized by many for his use of brightly colored images and child-like techniques, which lent a sense of vitality, charm, and innocence to his painting.

Toulouse-Lautrec — This artist lived for 36 short years in his ill-proportioned body before succumbing to the effects of alcoholism and syphilis. His dissolute life spent in Paris nightclubs and brothels in the 19th century provided the subject matter for his finest work. His radical, boldly colored paintings and posters depicting the famous Moulin Rouge nightclub captured the unique feeling and energy of contemporary Parisian nightlife.

Van Gogh — A supreme example of the tortured artistic genius, Van Gogh’s whole life was a struggle against poverty, loneliness, and mental illness. The hundreds of canvases that he painted in the South of France are recognized as masterpieces of the Post-Impressionist age. Though he sold just one painting in his lifetime, works such as Sunflowers now fetch prices at auction of tens of millions of dollars.
