About the Work

The French artist Henri Edmond Cross was a leading proponent of what was known as Pointillism - a painting technique that developed out of Impressionism and in which the pictorial motif is built up using individual coloured dots. This watercolour shows a carefully thought-out colour composition and the inspiration that captures the bright light of southern France. Cross records the unusual atmosphere of the Mediterranean coast with broad brushstrokes and an arrhythmic yet harmonious distribution of related colours.
