Have you ever filled a white sketchbook with paint on the tip of your brush in elementary school art class? Pointillism is a way of painting by drawing dots. Now, take a step closer to the TV, and if you look at it from a distance, it's a painting, but if you look closely, you can feel the charm of a point drawing composed of each dot.

      Georges Seurat (1859-1891) was a French neo-imaginary founder. He applied pointillism and divisiveness techniques developed as a result of scientific research on color and light to paintings. The colors of the paint were not directly mixed, but pure colors were harmoniously arranged. Little dots of color painted with feathery brushstrokes made the painting transparent and bright. Neo-Impressionist painters such as Paul Signac and Camille Pissarro were very interested in these techniques. Since then, it has influenced not only Impressionism but also Cubism and Futureism, and has had a great influence on the birth of 20th century art. Contemporary art critics rate him as the most influential of avant-garde artists.

      Paul Signac (1863-1935) was born to a wealthy retailer in Paris, France. Having spent his childhood near Pigal Square in the heart of Montmartre, he was naturally able to get close to painters, models, and images, and this environment led him to the painter's path at the crossroads between architects and painters. Early on, Signac began painting landscapes outdoors in Asni 야외re. At this time, he met Camille Pissarro and Georges Seurat. At the invitation of the two, Signac participated in the first Angde Pang Dang in 1884. In 1886 he presented his work with Seurah in the eighth and final Impressionist Exhibition. Art critic Félix Fénéon, who saw the exhibition, defined their work as "new impressionism." However, Signac developed pointillism, referring to the search for light and color as 'color-light painters'.

      Henry Jean Guillaume Martin was a French Impressionist painter. In 1879, Martin moved to Paris and studied at the studio of Jean-Paul Lawrence with the help of a scholarship. Four years later, he received his first medal at the Paris Salon, where he held his first exhibition three years later in 1886. Martin's work as a neo-Impressionist is not considered groundbreaking, but his work is rather well received.
