Neo-Impressionism

Home » Glossary » Neo-Impressionism

Neo-impressionism is an art movement that emerged in France in the late 19th century. The movement was characterized by its use of small, distinct dots or strokes of color, known as pointillism or divisionism, to create the impression of form and light. Neo-impressionist painters were interested in the scientific study of color and optics, and sought to create works of art that were both aesthetically pleasing and intellectually engaging.
