Henri-Edmond Cross (1856-1910) | Divisionist painter


Henri-Edmond Delacroix started his studies in 1878 at the Écoles Académiques de Dessin et d'Architecture in Lille, where he attended Alphonse Colas' studio.
In 1881 he moved to Paris, where he continued his studies in Émile Dupont-Zipcy's atelier.
That year, exhibited the first time at the Salon and decided to change his name to "Henri Cross" (a reduced English version of his name), to avoid being mistaken for the romantic painter Eugène Delacroix. Later, in 1886 he finally adopted the name "Henri-Edmond Cross", to distinguish himself from the French painter Henri Cros.

Gustave Caillebotte | A Balcony in Paris


Those boulevards, don’t forget, were still pretty new in 1877.
In the mid-19th Century, Napoléon III had ordered a massive redevelopment of the unruly French capital - led by Georges-Eugène Haussmann, the prefect of the Seine, who boldly (you might say pitilessly) cleared out Paris’s dense, politically restless faubourgs.
In their place arose standardised blocks of housing, fronting new extended axes that showcased landmarks like so many imperial baubles.

Georges Seurat (1859-1891) | Pointillist painter


Georges-Pierre Seurat was a French🎨 post-Impressionist artist. He is best known for devising the painting techniques known as chromoluminarism as well as pointillism🎨.
While less famous than his paintings, his conté crayon drawings have also garnered a great deal of critical appreciation.
Seurat's artistic personality was compounded of qualities which are usually supposed to be opposed and incompatible: on the one hand, his extreme and delicate sensibility, on the other, a passion for logical abstraction and an almost mathematical precision of mind.
His large-scale work, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte (1884-1886)🎨, altered the direction of modern art by initiating Neo-impressionism, and is one of the icons of late 19th-century painting.

Georges Seurat | A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, 1884


"Bedlam", "scandal", and “hilarity” were among the epithets used to describe what is now considered Georges Seurat’s greatest work, and one of the most remarkable paintings of the nineteenth century, when it was first exhibited in Paris.
Seurat labored extensively over A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, 1884, reworking the original as well as completing numerous preliminary drawings and oil sketches (the Art Institute has one such sketch and two drawings).
