Post-impressionism is the general term applied to several trends in painting, particularly in France, which developed out of, or in reaction to, impressionism. A post-impressionist stage can be identified in Diego Rivera’s work, strongly marked by the influence of Paul Cézanne, in terms of the handling of paint, the brushstrokes, and the use of color. For impressionist painters the most important colors were green and yellow, the colors of light. In general, they depicted outdoor scenes and sought to express on canvas the first emotion or sensation provoked by a given sight.
