Did you know?

Hayet received considerable critical praise for his original idea of developing a neo-impressionist color chart that incorporates gray tones.

Description

Louis Hayet was an important, early member of the neo-impressionist movement that first came to public attention at the eighth impressionist exhibition of 1886. Banks of the Oise at Dawn is one of Hayet's finest works in the then radically new style of neo-impressionism, also known as pointillism or divisionism, in which small strokes of pure color are applied according to principles of scientific color theory.
