What were some of the controversies surrounding Post-Impressionism?

Post-Impressionism was a controversial movement, with many critics and art institutions initially rejecting the work of artists associated with the movement. Some critics felt that the vivid colors and bold brushstrokes used by Post-Impressionists were too "wild" and "uncontrolled," while others objected to the use of symbolic or abstract elements in their art. Despite these criticisms, however, Post-Impressionism had a lasting impact on the art world and continues to be celebrated today as an important movement in the history of art.
