Cloisonnism is one of the significant styles that emerged during the Post-Impressionism period. Following the main themes in this art period, Cloisonnism is characterized by flat areas of color and dark linework. Created by Emile Bernard, Louis Anquetin, and Paul Gauguin, the art movement was inspired by Japanese woodblock prints and stained glass windows. Cloisonnism was coined by art critic Édouard Dujardin after the decorative technique cloisonné, which describes metalwork objects that contain colorful glass within wireframes.
