Divisionism

 

or pointillism, a style of painting, developed by G. Seurat and P. Signac, characteristic of neoimpressionism. The technique involves the orderly breakdown of a complex color tone into pure colors that are applied to the canvas with separate brush strokes. When perceived by the viewer, these strokes blend optically. Divisionism was used by H. Cross and, to some extent, C. Pissarro in France, G. Segantini in Italy, and T. van Rysselberghe in Belgium. Elements of divisionism appear in several works by I. E. Grabar’ in Russia.
