Pointillism

Pointillism was a late 19th-century method of painting, consisting of depositing small dots or strokes of pure color on the canvas.

Seen from a distance, these "points" blend and give the effect of a different color and heightened luminosity. The style, a development of impressionist color theories, was originated by the French painters Georges Seurat and Paul Signac.
