The Belgian painter Théo Van Rysselberghe (1862-1926) is one of the most emblematic figures of the neo-Impressionist movement, together with Georges Seurat and Paul Signac. With his delicate touch, refined chromatic sense and great elegance--above all in his portraits--he produced some of the finest works of Divisionism. Yet Van Rysselberghe's oeuvre is not limited to his best-known works of his neo-Impressionist period (1888-96). Distancing himself from the strict division of colors, he subsequently moved towards a more fluid style that nevertheless retained his signature luminosity. His portraits and female nudes, the landscapes he brought back from his numerous trips to Morocco, France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands, all reveal an insatiable curiosity and an immense talent, coupled with a rare sensibility. This generous new catalogue presents many works that have never been published before.
