About

A lovely watercolour on paper circa 1900 by Henri Edmond Cross depicting a figure in an alley of trees. Stamped with the cachet of the artists sale lower right. Framed dimensions are 13 inches high by 11 inches wide. Henri Edmond Cross (French, 1856–1910) was a leading Neo-Impressionist painter, a pioneer of Pointillism, and a founding member of the Salon des Indépendants. Born in Douai and raised in Lille, France, Cross studied law before moving to Paris to study at the École des Beaux-Arts. While in Paris, Cross began painting in the studio of François Bonvin (French, 1817–1887), and exhibiting his work at the Salons where he met Claude Monet (French, 1840–1926), Georges Seurat (French, 1859–1891), and Paul Signac (French, 1863–1935). Cross’ interactions with these painters were influential; his palette became more vibrant, his brushstrokes suggested vigorous dabs of colour, and his paintings became more entrenched with the atmospheric qualities championed by the Impressionists. The primacy of light, the logical culmination of Seurat's and Signac's work, would accelerate the development of modern painting. Cross's open secret, 'I come back to the idea of chromatic harmonies, created from nothing (so to speak) and outside nature, as a starting point', could be seen as a step towards later Abstract art, just like the famous maxim of Maurice Denis on 'colours arranged in a certain order'. Through the intervention of Cross, the Neo-Impressionists, referred to as the dissidents of Impressionism, contributed decisively to an historic upheaval which was to challenge fundamentally the traditional notions of painting.
