Description

This is a brilliant impression of Luce's most important color lithograph, which exemplifies the ideas of his close friend and fellow artist Paul Signac (1863–1935): that optical effects of color are achieved by the juxtaposition of touches of pure pigment. In his paintings, Luce used brushstrokes rather than the pointillist dots of color favored by painters such as Georges Seurat (1859–1891). When using lithography Luce placed dashes of different colors side by side so that they would interact, achieving a rich glow of color.
