Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo

Jul 28, 1868 - Jun 14, 1907

Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo was an Italian divisionist painter. He was born and died in Volpedo, in the Piedmont region of northern Italy.
Pellizza was a pupil of Pio Sanquirico. He used a divisionist technique in which a painting is created by juxtaposing small dots of paint according to specific color theory. Although he exhibited often, his work achieved popularity in death through their reproduction in socialist magazines and the acclaim they received from 20th century art critics.
