Hippolyte Petitjean French, 1854-1929


Hippolyte Petitjean, along with such artists as Dubois-Pillet, Angrand, Luce, Gausson, Cross, Schuffenecker, and Pissarro, was a follower of Seurat in the movement known as Neo-Impressionism.  The Neo-Impressionists employed a divisionist technique of applying paint and followed Seurat's theories of color.  Petitjean, as well as others, would exhibit together as a group known as the Independents at the Salon of the Independents beginning in 1891.  They would also exhibit together in 1892 and 1893 at the Les XX in Brussels.
