Henri Edmond Cross (1856-1910). Poitillism

Henri Edmond Cross' Painting. PoitillismThe Blooming Terrace

The artist was a major figure of Neo-Impressionism in the late 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries.
He was born Henri Edmond Delacroix and later took English name Cross to avoid confusion with his namesake Eugene.
He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and exhibited at the Salon in 1881.
The same year the artist moves to St. Clair, in Provence, where he can research on light and observe nature and where Henri Matisse often stays painting along with Cross.
He then adopts the technique of pointillism influenced by Paul Signac.
Cross' landscape paintings reflect flamboyant colors and light of Provence, the rustling waters of sea and wind touching leaves.
His later works are Fauvist, perhaps influenced by his acquaintance with Henri Matisse.
The artist died of cancer at the age of 54 years.
