This focused exhibition of approximately forty paintings comprises works by the masters of Italian Divisionism, such as Giovanni Segantini, Angelo Morbelli, and Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo, together with significant Neo-Impressionists paintings by, among others, Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and Camille Pissarro. Italian Divisionism, like Neo-Impressionism (or Pointillism), is a late nineteenth-century painting style premised on color theory and optics, in which dots or dashes of often complementary colors are juxtaposed to effect shimmering, luminous works. Organized thematically—"Light," "Landscape," "Rural Life," "Social Problems," and "Symbolism"—Divisionism/Neo-Impressionism explores the optically vibrant paintings executed by the Italian Divisionists and, for the first time, considers their relationship to Neo-Impressionism.
