Seurat, Signac, Van Gogh. Ways of Pointillism

In the autumn of 2016, the Albertina joins forces with the Kröller-Müller Museum to present an exhibition on pointillism. 120 selected paintings, watercolours, and drawings illuminate the development of this pioneering dot-based technique between 1886 and 1930.
Luminous masterpieces by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac welcome visitors to this major autumn presentation. They are joined by selected works of Henri Matisse, André Derain, Pablo Picasso, and Gino Severini. These painters put an end to a conception of art as an imitation of reality, instead giving rise to new pictorial realities via the independence of dots, colours, and light in their images. Alongside Seurat, Vincent van Gogh also had an influence on the succeeding generation of artists by taking up pointillism in Paris and Arles in a way that was non-systematic but full of expressivity and passion. In this presentation, Van Gogh assumes a special place.
