of the Artists that
Pointillism Georges-Pierre Seurat was born in Paris on December 2 1859, the son of comfortably-off parents. His father, a legal official, was a solitary man with a taciturn and withdrawn manner which his son also inherited. Seurat's mother was quiet and unassuming, but it was she who gave some warmth and continuity to his childhood.As a young man Seurat was tall and handsome with a quiet, gentle voice. Reserved and dignified in dress as well as manner, he was always neatly and correctly turned out: He was serious and intense preferring to spend his money on books rather than on food or drink but his most pronounced characteristic was his secretiveness.Seurat entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, the official Paris art school 1878. He rejected the soft, irregular brushstrokes of impressionism in favor of pointillism, a technique he developed whereby solid forms are constructed by applying small, close-packed dots of unmixed color to a white background.In 1879, a year of military service broke into his artistic studies. Seurat was sent to the great military port of Brest on the western coast of Brittany, where he fitted in easily to barracks discipline and used his spare time to begin sketching figures and ships. Seurat has many masterpieces but the "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grand Jatte" was one of the stand-out works in the eighth and last Impressionist exhibition, in 1884, and after it was shown later that year, at the Sociéte des Artistes Indépendents Paul Signac was a French neo-impressionist painter, one of the originators of pointillism or divisionism. Upon Seurat's death, he succeeded him as leader of the Neo-Impressionists. Signac was born in Paris on November 11, 1863. He originally planned to study architecture, but upon getting to know the Impressionist school, he decided to become an artist, his prosperous shop keeping family giving him financial independence.In 1884 he met Monet and Georges Seurat. He was struck by the systematic working methods of Seurat and his theory of colors and became Seurat's faithful supporter.Many of Signac's paintings are of the French coast. In March, 1889, he visited Vincent van Gogh at Arles. The next year he made a short trip to Italy, seeing Genoa, Florence, and Naples.After Seurat's death in 1891, he helped to list and classify his work. The leadership of the Neo-impressionist movement, he felt, rested now with himself. In 1892 he took part in a Neo-Impressionist group show. Among many exhibitions that he helped to organize were memorial shows for Van Gogh and Seurat, in 1891 and 1892 respectively. Most of Signac's paintings are landscapes, cityscape, and architectural buildings since he's an architect. Although Luce also paints landscapes, he also likes to paint men at work and the injustice of the Government in his time since he's an anarchist. Maximilien Luce (March 13, 1858 – February 6, 1941) was a French Neo-impressionist artist. A printmaker, painter, and anarchist, Luce is best known for his pointillist canvases. He grew up in the working class Montparnasse, and became a painter of landscapes and urban scenes which frequently emphasize the activities of people at work. He was a member of the Groupe de Lagny with Léo Gausson, Émile-Gustave Cavallo-Péduzzi and Lucien Pissarro.Like Camille Pissarro, Luce was active with anarchist groups in Paris in the 1890s, and in 1894 served a brief prison term during the Trial of the thirty, before being acquitted. One of his friends in this period was the Swedish artist Ivan Aguéli. During World War I, Luce painted war scenes, depicting soldiers struggling against the horrors of the Great War. Luce died in Paris in 1941. Henri-Edmond Cross, born Henri-Edmond-Joseph Delacroix, (20 May 1856 – 16 May 1910) was a French painter and printmaker. He is most acclaimed as a master of Neo-Impressionism, and he played an important role in shaping the second phase of that movement. He was very influential to Henri Matisse and many other artists, and his work was an instrumental influence in the development of Fauvism. Most of Cross' paintings are about the landscapes of nature.
