Henri-Edmond Cross, born Henri-Edmond-Joseph Delacroix, (20 May 1856 – 16 May 1910) was a French painter and printmaker. One of the foremost practitioners of Neo-Impressionism, Henri-Edmond Cross produced an array of work in the final two decades of his life that played a pivotal role in the development of early twentieth century modernist painting. Initially drawn to naturalism and then Impressionism, he eventually adoped the Pointillist technique pioneered by his friend Georges Seurat, the leader of the Neo-Impressionists. Cross’s paintings of the early- to mid-1890s are characteristically Pointillist, with closely and regularly positioned tiny dots of color. However, the strict precepts of Pointillism did not appeal to Cross’s predisposition for individual expression and, alongside Paul Signac, he began to develop a Neo-Impressionist technique that was more intensely colorful and varied in its application. Beginning around 1895, he gradually shifted his technique, instead using broad, blocky brushstrokes and leaving small areas of exposed bare canvas between the strokes. The resulting surfaces resembled mosaics. In the Pointillist style, minute spots of paint were used to blend colors harmoniously; in contrast, the strategy in “second generation Neo-Impressionism” was to keep the colors separate, resulting in “vibrant shimmering visual effects through contrast”.The abstracted forms and dazzling colors that the artist displays in these paintings promptly paved the way for Fauvism and Cubism.
