pointillism fine art prints and canvas prints
Pointillism is a movement that follows directly on from the Impressionists and evolves from 1884 to the 1900s. Impressionism had its last hours of glory in 1886 when the works of the Impressionists were exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris. This exhibition, together with certain scientific discoveries made at the end of the century, led to the creation of a new movement known today in various ways as the divisionist, pointillist or neo-impressionist movement. The first exhibition that introduced the pointillist artists (Georges Seurat, Paul Signac and Henri-Edmond Cross) to the public was held in 1884 at the Salon des Indépendants. Pointillist painting gradually faded away at the end of the century, giving way to currents that tended towards abstraction.

One of the first pointillist works is Georges Seurat's Bathing at Asnières. This painting was painted according to the precepts of Michel Chevreul and Charles Henry who, at the end of the 19th century, studied the effects of colour and light on our eyes. This innovative pictorial technique consists of painting by juxtaposing small touches of primary colours (red; yellow; blue) which are softened by more moderate colours (orange; violet; green). If we look closely at the painting we see an infinite number of shapeless dots of colour; yet, if we stand at a distance, our eye synthesises the colours in such a way as to discover the scene in its entirety. After Georges Seurat's death in 1891, Paul Signac ensured the continuity of the movement with his work and more particularly with his Application of the Chromatic Circle of Monsieur Charles Henri.
