The late nineteenth century advancements in colour theories had a profound influence on artistic creation. While impressionist paintings captured the spontaneity of fleeting moments, the carefully planned world of Pointillism applied the concept of the scientific essay the Principles of Harmony and Contrasts of Colours by Michel Eugène Chevreul. Artists renounced the fluid and spontaneous strokes in favour of tiny dots in pure complementary colours that seem to ripple across the surface of the canvas.

Through its new exhibition Pointillism, Bailly Gallery pays tribute to the strident colour combinations and genuineness of this important art movement. The show will include masterpieces by Georges Seurat, Theo Van Rysselberghe, Camille Pissarro, and others.
