Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo's PaintingField in Bloom


He was the Italian Pointillist painter. Born into a family of small landowners, he completed his academic studies at some of the most important Italian academies of his time (the Brera Academy in Milan, the San Luca Academy and the French Academy in Rome, the school run by the painter Giovanni Fattori in Florence, the Carrara in Bergamo, and the Ligustica in Genoa). At the beginning of the nineties he decided to move permanently back to Volpedo.
His decision was reinforced by the marriage contract with the 17-year-old Teresa Bin. Pelizza was one of the most important Italian artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries when his life was shattered by the death of his beloved wife (she died in childbirth of their third son). Deep depression led to his suicide in 1907.

Pointillism is a form of painting in which tiny dots of primary-colors are used to generate secondary colors. It is an offshoot of Impressionism, and is usually categorized as a form of Post-Impressionism. It is very similar to Divisionism, except that where Divisionism is concerned with color theory, Pointillism is more focused on the specific style of brushwork used to apply the paint. artcyclopedia.com

“Painted measles” is what one hostile critic called the efforts of the Italian followers of French Neo-Impressionism. The reference was to the tiny dots of color that covered their canvases. The technique, also called Pointillism, was formulated by the Parisian Georges Seurat in the early 1880s. nytimes.com
