Pointillism Movement

Pointillism, a neo-impressionism practice inspired by scientific research carried out by the Impressionists. It is an artistic movement that arose at the end of the 19th-century in France and Belgium. Indeed, the French painter Georges Seurat and the landscape painter Paul Signac orchestrated the premise of pointillism. Its fundamental principle is based on a division and segmentation of color. To illustrate a scene, one must attempt to transcribe it; the artist replaces each brushstroke with juxtaposing dots of color. He then harmonizes his painting by comparing each primary color pigment to its complementary color. The painting is thus full of meticulous scintillating reflections, which gives it a certain depth and characteristic luminosity. Through its cascades of colored contrasts, pointillism most often reflects a bucolic atmosphere, filled with calm and warm energy. Landscape, portrait, and everyday scenes, the subjects all revolve around undeniable precision. A pointillist artist places observation at the center of his thinking.
