Maximilien Luce, just beginning a long life and a tremendous output of paintings, drawings, and posters, painted in pointillist style from 1887. He frequently painted streets and buildings in his home city of Paris. Neo-Impressionist technique later constituted only one of the visual options he combined with his exact draughtsmanship.
