The Post Impressionists

I stumbled recently upon this painting by Theo van Rysselberghe, painted in 1918, of Madame van Rysselberghe . The painting stuck with me because the subject was a) female b) wearing a woven silk jacquard bow tie and c) it was 1918. I find that interesting in terms of fashion for women.

After impressionism had had it's moment (Manet/Monet etc) , the post impressionists attempted to bring structure and order back to the world of impressionism. Hence the name. Among the post impressionists were Toulouse Lautrec, Cezanne and Gaughin. I am quite sure if you spoke to them individually they would not wish to be banded together under one umbrella of 'post impressionism' but the reason why I am referencing this painting is because, if you look at it, you can see the beginnings of a new silk design.... don't you think?
