Postimpressionism: term coined by Roger Fry, referring to the work of some late 19th-cent. painters who, although they developed their varied styles quite independently, were united in their rejection of Impressionism.
The term embraces a far wider school of thought than the neo-impressionism of Georges Seurat and Paul Signac.
