Synthetism (from French synthétiser: to combine) is a style within Post-Impressionist painting that arose from a union of Cloisonism and Symbolism. It can be understood as a counter-movement to Pointillism, which emerged around 1888 as a variant of Late Impressionism.

1891-1910

Synthetism

The Groupe synthétiste was founded in 1891 by Paul Gauguin, Émile Bernard, Louis Anquetin, Charles Laval (1862-1894), Louis Roy (1862-1907) and other artists of the so-called Pont-Aven school. The representatives of Synthetism are partly identical with the artist group Les Nabis, which was associated with Symbolism.
