Pointilismus

9 Discovered artists
The stylistic point of pointilism is an area of ??painting that is attributed to neo-impressionism and had its flowering between 1897 and 1910. He sees himself as a development of Impressionism. The main feature of pointilism is dotted with paintings, the preferred colors are oil colors. The term is derived from the French verb pointiller, which means "to draw with dots".

Through the interrupted color surfaces, pointilistic images appear light, airy and give the desired impression of impermanence. They tried to show as realistic a snapshot as possible, and used only pure colors in pointilism. The painting style makes use of the additive color mixing. Only at a certain distance do the individual points intermingle with surfaces and the human eye recognizes the representation in its entirety. The best-known representatives are the French artists Georges Seurat and Paul Signac, who, in addition to pointillism, also dealt with other styles. Georges Seurat is the founder of the style, but the painter Camille Pissaro is no less famous. Vincent van Gogh also tried in pointilism. One of his works pointilistic works is called "interior of a restaurant" and dates from 1897.

The artists of pointilism were frequently underestimated by their contemporaries. Her painting was wrongly regarded as childlike. Art historians today argue that modernity would not have been possible without pointillism.
