Theo van Rysselberghe was a Belgian neo-impressionist painter, who
played a pivotal role in the European art scene at the turn of the
century. Barely 18 years old, he has developed his own realistic
style, close to impressionism. The accurate rendering of light
would continue to occupy his mind. He was one of the prominent
co-founders of the Belgian artistic circle Les XX on 28 October
1883. This was a circle of young radical artists, rebels against
the outmoded academism of that time and the prevailing artistic
standards. After van Rysselberghe saw the works of the
impressionists Monet and Renoir, he was deeply impressed and start
experimented with this technique. He discovered the pointillist
technique when he saw Georges Seurat's La Grande Jatte in 1886,
abandoned realism and became an adept of pointillism. After 1890s,
he slowly reduced the use of points, began applying somewhat
broader strokes and after 1910 abandoned it completely.
