About this artwork

As a result of his rheumatoid arthritis, Henri-Edmond Cross moved to Cabasson, a hamlet on the Côte d’Azur. This move south deeply affected his art. Although he had been friends with Camille Pissarro, Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and other Neo-Impressionists for years, it was only after settling on the Mediterranean coast in 1891 that he embraced the divided brushwork (small dashes and dots of color applied regularly throughout a composition) and color gradations of “scientific Impressionism.” It became his means of capturing the color and heat of his adopted region.
