In the 20th century, the Dutch School was characterised by Luminism. Luminism, in turn, is inspired by pointillism. It is a form of pointillism in which the influences of Vincent van Gogh are clearly visible. Luminism comes back in many paintings of the Dutch School in the 20th century. Furthermore, Impressionism was still a very loved style by the Dutch School.
