See Radiance : The Neo-Impressionists @ the NGV International


What exactly is a Neo-Impressionist? That's the question I was burning to ask when I heard the upcoming exhibition Radiance : The
Neo-Impressionists
being discussed recently. I decided not to ask but rather to head home and investigate.

Here's a quick summary of what I discovered. Neo-Impressionism was an artistic movement and style which flourished from 1884 until 1935. It refers to an era where artists used a painting technique called pointillism. Small, distinct dots of paint were placed side by side on the canvas to form an image. The painting style was inspired by French artists George Seurat and Paul Signac.
