Pointillism

Pointillism, just as it sounds, is a style of art using only dots. French Artist Georges Seurat, the founder of this movement in the 1880s, preferred the name Divisionism.

It was the critics of this movement that gave it the name Pointillism.

At left you see a close-up of Seurat's painting. It is a close-up of the man laying down on the lower left. Even thought he appears to be wearing white pants, as you can see, the part of the pants in the shadow just above the grass has no white in it. It's only when you look at it from a distance that the colors blend in.
