Henri-Edmond Cross


Quick Reference


French painter, mainly of landscapes. He worked in an Impressionist and then a Neo-Impressionist style, and his use of large dots of bright colour had a brief but important influence on the early work of the Fauves, notably Matisse, who in 1904 visited him at his home at Le Lavandou on the Mediterranean coast when he was spending the summer at St-Tropez, near Signac.

Subjects: Art.
