Definition of neo-impressionism in English:

neo-impressionism

noun

mass noun
  • A late 19th-century movement in French painting which sought to improve on impressionism through a systematic approach to form and colour, particularly using pointillist technique. The movement's leading figures included Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and Camille Pissarro.

    ‘On both grounds, neo-Impressionism claimed greater objectivity, thus challenging the individualist basis of Impressionist naturalism in favor of a shared and more permanent, hence more classical, vision.’
