A branch of the Neo-Impressionist movement, Pointillism is an extremely technical form of painting which has only a few practitioners today. Pointillism continues to excite designers and inspires them to create designs in sync with the best that Pointillism has had to offer. Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte is one of his most famous works. It is made with approximately 3,456,000 dots and remains one of the most celebrated works of the artist. It is excellent for magazine spreads and the like, and lends itself well for designers working on creating arts for print campaigns. The Windmills at Overschie by Paul Signac is one of the most beautiful landscapes by the artist that was completed in 1906. It has potential as the fodder for designers trying to create Pointillism themed creations for high-end fashion campaigns, especially autumn/winter collections. Notable artist Théo van Rysselberghe’s A Coastal Scene is a truly remarkable work made entirely in shades of white, which has potential in the clear lucidity of the picture, perfect for minimalist designs. It is evocative of mysterious fragrances and a chilly atmosphere and hence a favourite with artists. Artist Paul Signac’s The Pine Tree at St. Tropez is an explosion of colour, with predominant yellows and psychedelic blues, purples, reds and oranges as accents. With a simplistic theme, the painting has garnered international attention and acclaim since its completion in 1909, and continues to be an inspiration for contemporary designers. Maximilien Luce’s Notre Dame Cathedral is an oil on canvas piece which is a marvelously realistic impressionist painting using the pointillist techniques. The various shades of purples are a compelling find, as are the contrasting dark-hued figures in the foreground. The Le Pont de Pierre, Rouen by Charles Angrand is a beautiful lesson in the progression of colours, one of the main tenets of pointillist paintings.
