Lucien Neuquelman was a French artist whose oeuvre was heavily influenced by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac, the forefunners of the pointillist technique. Neuquelman’s painting approach relies on the ability of the eye and mind of the viewer to blend his singular spots of colour into a fuller range of tones. Like with Seurat and Signac, Neuquelman does not mix colours on a palette but rather applies complimentary colours in close proximity to one another, often making the colours seem much brighter and more vivid.
