Hippolyte Petitjean: pointillist technique by widely-spaced rounded spots of pure color
When he was 13, Petitjean became an apprentice in the workshop of an artisan painter and began his art studies in the evening classes given at the École de dessin in Mâcon. The town gave him a grant to continue at the École des Beaux-Arts where he studied under Alexandre Cabanel and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes.
He was later influenced by Georges Seurat whom he met in Paris in 1884. After Seurat encouraged him to join the Neo-Impressionists, he was also influenced by Paul Signac and Camille Pissarro.
He adopted the pointillist technique until 1894 when he started to combine it with more feathery strokes.
