Divisionism

Divisionism is the technique of applying unmixed pigment to the canvas in small dots. Also known as Pointillism, Divisionism was a prominent style among the Neo-Impressionists. The method was born from the theory that the viewer’s eye would merge the tones into a more luminous and brilliant composition. The Impressionists were the first to dabble in this method, which was appropriate for the period’s interest in the new science of color theory. Georges Seurat, however, was the first artist to adapt his paintings entirely to Divisionism, both practicing and developing the technique. Seurat is considered a Post-Impressionist, the vague term for the artists working after the initial fame of the Impressionists, but before the abstraction of Fauvism and Cubism took root. Another artist to experiment with Divisionism was Vincent van Gogh, whose restless and impersonal flicks of paint reflect similar attitudes to Seurat’s towards the importance of color.

Latest Product Reviews

Item 85485 is made for ink lettering (it is raised off the paper) and is of pretty thin plastic (not suitable for lettering with a hard lead pencil). Don't spend your money on this if you are not sure what you want. On the plus side, it has true 1/8" upper and lower case letters (not a metric substitute)

Very thin, quite transparent. Holds well

Masterpiece is absolutely fantastically prepared canvas! The surface is smoother than Fredricks Red Label, but not quite as smooth as their Blue label...right in between for a surface that can be used for detailed work effectively! The canvas support is incredible!They are very well made, and perfectly aligned, supported, and taut...just the way I like it! Big thumbs up for this brand of canvas!
