This event has ended.

In Europe at the end of the 19th century, artists began to liberate color from the function of attempting to reproduce the outside world. After growing dissatisfied with the Impressionist approach of divided brushstrokes, Georges Seurat, a prominent Neo-Impressionist, developed the technique of Divisionism based on the use of small, primary-colored dots. The brilliance of these minute stipples and pure colors, combined with the theorization of Signac, attracted many painters and also contributed to the rise of abstract painting. This exhibition features works, primarily from the Kröller-Müller Museum in the Netherlands, by a group of artists who explored the potential of color, beginning with Seurat, and continuing on with Van Gogh and Mondrian.
