Post Impressionism is a name chosen to represent a variety of different art that came after Impressionism.
Post Impressionism was the only appropriate name to call this style since it somewhat resembled impressionism, but was also unique.
Post Impressionism applies to all painters of significance in the 1880s and 1890s.
More specifically it deals with painters who were Impressionists but became dissatisfied with the limitations of the style and pursued a variety of directions.
Since Post Impressionists did not share a common goal there is no more descriptive term for them then Post Impressionists.
