Why bother collecting Micropointillist work?

  • The paintings are beautiful. Thin, translucent layers allow light to penetrate and bounce back from the primed white surface through the colors, giving the paintings an inner glow, an effect much prized by the Dutch masters.
  • They are scarce. As of 2008, there are only a handful of artists who have competently mastered the art of Micropointillism, and only two artists have made a living from it.
  • They last. Micropointillism is created with archival materials. Consisting of acrylic or oil on canvass, these works have been exposed to large quantities of water, thus removing residual acidic compounds that tend to age artwork.
