| From mixed to pure color: the triumph of Neoimpressionism over the traditional method of painting

The representatives of Neo-Impressionism permanently liberated paint from the blend on the palette as well as from its traditional method of application, just as it had been revived through the atmospheric illusionism of the Impressionists. Beginning in France, the painterly revolution of the new movement—also known as Pointillism or Divisionism—stretched from the banks of the Seine to the snow-covered slopes of the Alps, from George Seurat to the Swiss artist Giovanni Giacometti. Unmixed and adhering to visual laws, the painters placed dots, spots, and lines of color alongside each other so precisely that the human eye ultimately performs the job of blending the colors during the process of viewing. Featuring texts by distinguished international specialists, this is the first catalogue to present a comprehensive view of as well as shed new light on works and facets of European Neo-Impressionism.
