Maximilien Luce: one of the great masters of Post-Impressionism

Camille Pissarro, who shared his political convictions, introduced him to Georges Seurat (1859-1891) and Paul Signac (1863-1935).


Luce became one of the founders of the Neo-Impressionist School. For many years Luce adhered to the Divisionist technique of color separation and theories of the scientists Michel Chevreul, Charles Henry and Ogden Rood.


Luce adhered in 1887 to the Society of the "Independents" and took part regularly in the exhibitions of that group regarded as an avant-garde movement during the first decade of its existence.


He painted many landscapes as well as city scenes and, as a demonstration of his deep concern for the working-class, he depicted workers in various attitudes. After 1920 as he was situated in Rolleboise Luce started to paint in a freer manner.
