Signac outlived Seurat and took Pointillism into new directions, including using pen and ink, which is a common pointillist practice today known as stippling.Georges Seurat and Paul Signac developed the technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism. The term Pointillism was coined by art critics in the late 1880s to ridicule the works of these artists, and is now used without its earlier mocking connotation. The movement Seurat began with this technique is known as Neoimpressionism. pointillist artists paul signac
