Henri Edmond Cross was born on this day in 1856. Originally named "Delacroix," he changed his name to the anglicized "Cross" to avoid confusion with the earlier artist. In 1884, Cross co-founded the "Société des Artistes Indépendants" where he met and befriended the neo-Impressionist painters Seurat and Signac, all of whom are represented in the Barnes Foundation collection. These artists, inspired by new optical theories, emphasized the use of separate, but interwoven touches of paint and a bright palette of contrasting hues to achieve greater vibrancy of color in the viewer’s eye. 🎨 Henri Edmond Cross. “Two Women by the Shore, Mediterranean,” 1896
