Maximilien Luce Biography

Maximilien Luce was formed at Paris's School of Decorative Arts to wood sculpture and engraving. He pursued his apprenticeship at the Suisse Academy and the School of Fine Arts where he began practising painting. His first artworks show Impressionist influences. However, his encounter with Georges Seurat, Paul Signac and Camille Pissarro lead him to a new approach: Pointillism. Luce exhibited throughout his career alongside the Neo-Impressionist artists notably at the Salon des Indépendants. His style is characterised by landscapes paintings of Normandy and Brittany, street views, wharf views rendered in a pointillist manner. However, Maximilien Luce also depicted topics that haven't been broached by his Pointillist friends such as workers in action.
