Seurat and Signac used to paint their precious canvass at the island of la Grande Jatte, where they portraited scenes of daily life in which nature is the real mistress; simple sceneries made unique by the incredible ability to capture every fragment of light and color on the canvas.

The exhibition is divided into seven great sections which follow a chronological order, and which retrace the artistic itinerary of these great artists, offering us the most important phases of their career: “Seurat and Signac before Neo-Impressionism”, “The Suburbs”, “The seasons and work”, “Seurat-Signac: Marines”, “The City”, “Portraits”, “After Seurat: Marines”.

Seurat and Signac, universally recognized as two of the greatest painters of France in last decades of 19th century, are most of all the founding fathers of the Neoimpressionist movement. Pointed to the roots of Impressionist tradition’s subjects, the Neo-Impressionism, contrary to the most of artistic movements, has a well-precise date of birth: 1884, the meeting between Seurat and Signac.

Since the day the two painters met, several observations, drafts and experiments took place within the space of two years, and this fact took to the diffusion of this artistic tendency, in France and Netherlands most of all, but also in the main European artistic centers (Divisionism before, and Futurism later in Italy).

In addition to the masterpieces of the artists whom the event is dedicated to, it will be possible to admire other international artists’ works, with a little homage to Italy with Giacomo Balla’s and Luigi Russolo’s works, to witness that the Neoimpressionism had no metes and bounds.
