Auteur: Hutton, John
Titel: Neo-impressionism and the search for solid ground
Sub titel: Art, science and anarchism in Fin-de-siècle France
Examines the theoretical bases and the social fabric that spawned French neo-impressionism, best represented by Seurat, Signac, Pissarro, Angrand, and Luce. Shows how they rejected the spontaneity of the impressionists to embrace scientific theories promulgated by anarchists Peter Kropotkin and Jean Grave, and how the movement broke up when their concern for social justice was supplanted by demands for more militant, didactic art.
