Henri-Edmond Cross entered the neo-impressionist circle relatively late, in 1891, and also formed a close friendship with Signac. The two painters exchange pictures and see each other regularly in the South where Cross accompanies Signac’s theoretical reflection on color. From 1895, their keys widened and they both used free and daring polychromy. After Cross’s death in 1910, Signac continued to acquire his paintings.
Among the painters of the neo-impressionist second generation, Signac particularly appreciates the art of his friend and pupil Lucie Cousturier.
