The French artist Francois Mathieu has created brilliant works in pointillism style. The artist is the continuer of old French school and such masters as Georges Seurat and Paul Signac. Today practically no one from artists draws in pointillism style because of complexity of art technics.
It is necessary to notice that the artist has gone much further than the eminent predecessors. His paintings are much more saturated by a life than paintings, for example by Seurat. Seurat as however Signac could not overcome up to the end in the paintings the certain static character, inherent of this technique. Francois Mathieu breaks this barrier with success, his paintings are brighter and colourful, and figures in his pictures are more lively and realistic. We can enjoy the sound of force of his paintings without any discounts for features of complexity of this art technique. It is possible to tell that Mathieu is the first of pointillist artists has completely overcome all restrictions imposed by this extremely difficult technique.
The life of the artist was short but bright as a shining tail of a comet. He was born in France and has died in India. It has been written in his last note: «I have made everything that I wanted, I have gone further…»
Looking at his paintings it is possible to agree with him only in one - he has splashed out the sea of vital energy on his pictures. His paintings exhale love tothe life and pleasure of life. All of them are emotionallycharged very positively.
Francois Mathieu has left many series of fine canvases: gentle female portraits, small streets of old French cities filled with the sun, magnificent flower still-lifes and landscapes with emerald greens and the azure sea. All these genres are presented in our gallery. His paintings are well suited for decoration of country houses and city apartments, corporate and bank collections.
