Post Impressionists Masters: Van Gogh and Cezanne


The revolution that turned its back to traditional painting techniques had begun with Manet and the Impressionists and then was followed through by the Post-Impressionists.

Post Impressionists rejected Impressionism’s concerns with the spontaneous and naturalistic rendering of light and colour. Instead they favoured an emphasis on more symbolic content, formal order and structure.

This series will review some of the great Post Impressionists masters whose far reaching aesthetic impact influenced groups that arose during the turn of the 20th Century like Expressionism, Cubism, Cubism, Fauvism and others.

Artists featured include Van Gogh, Gauguin, Seurat, and Cézanne among others.

Art documentaries by award winning producer Phil Grabsky will provide captivating in-depth looks into the iconic pieces of the artists reviewed accompanied by insights from the world’s leading historians and art critics.

Vincent van Gogh




One of the most well-known Post Impressionist artists, self-taught Van Gogh developed his own style of painting, exploring ways of expressing emotions through loaded brushstrokes and vivid colours while concentrating on themes of profound symbolism. This lecture will survey the remarkable journey of this truly original master that has inspired many generations of artists.

The film Vincent van Gogh, a new way of seeing provides viewers with the moving and inspiring experience of seeing Vincent’s iconic masterpieces close-up on the screen and presents new insights and interpretations by specially invited guests including V. Willem van Gogh, great grandson of Theo van Gogh, and contemporary artist Lachlan Goudie

Paul Cezanne




Widely acknowledged for bridging the late years of Impressionism and the early years of Post Impressionism, Cézanne’s distinctive style of building form with colour and his analytical approach to nature influenced Cubism, Fauvism and successive generations of avant-garde artists. This session will trace the life and work of "the father of us all" as described by Picasso and Matisse

The movie Cézanne – Portraits of a Life offers an unprecedented level of insight into a ’once in a lifetime’ major exhibition featuring interviews with curators, art experts and the artist’s great grandson Philippe Cézanne. The film also travels to Cézanne’s home and studio in Provence shedding new light on the life and work of this hugely influential artist
