We then briefly looked at some of the artistic trends in 19th-century America (and how they differed from what was going on in European art) by discussing the work of William Harnett, the Hudson River School, Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins , and Henry Ossawa Tanner.
Then we began our discussion of the four main artists who make up what is called post-impressionism by looking first at the work of Georges Seurat and his work that combines the influence of impressionism with a more scientific approach of how color is seen by the human eye.
Next lecture we will continue our discussions of the post-impressionists.
