Pointillism Van Gogh liked and disliked

Pointillism Van Gogh liked and disliked

Pointillism is a style of painting in which small distinct points of primary colors create the impression of a wide selection of secondary colors.

The technique relies on the perceptive ability of the eye and mind of the viewer to mix the color spots into a fuller range of tones.

It is a style with few serious practitioners, and is notably seen in the artworks of Signac, Seurat and Cross. The term itself was first coined by art critics in the late 1880 to ridicule the works of these artists, and is now used without its earlier mocking connotation.

In practice : if red, blue, and green-yellow light are mixed, the result is something close to white light. Painting is inherently, but pointillist colors often seem brighter than typical mixed subtractive colors. This may be partly because subtractive mixing of the pigments is avoided, and partly because some of the white canvas may be showing between the applied dots.

Vincent van Gogh learned from his friend in art Georges Seurat about the light palette, used by the pointillists. But later on the pointillists had chosen for a more theoretical approach of their art. It was against the art feelings of Van Gogh.
