From Seurat to Paul Klee is the first exhibition to take place in France entirely devoted to the neo-Impressionist movement. Based on the discovery of new techniques of painting, a new approach to artistic thought emerged whereby scientific precision would play a significant part. The classic example of this is the technique of pointillism, the placing of small dots of colour side by side instead of the traditional blending techniques used at the time. The exhibition is organised according to these innovations and the impact they caused in different countries. Eventually Fauvism would emerge with its explosion of colour, heavily influenced by the work of Signac, Seurat, or even Pissarro. Tickets cost 9 or 7 with concessions. Free assisted access is provided for disabled persons and their guides.
