    Long overshadowed by their French predecessors (which is not to say progenitors), who also exploited color theory and were similarly involved in leftist politics, the Italian Divisionists finally get their due with this tightly focused exhibition—curated by Vivien Greene—of some forty paintings produced between the early 1880s and the first years of the 1900s by artists including Giovanni Segantini, Angelo Morbelli, Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo, Emilio Longoni, and Gaetano Previati. Their works will be shown together with paintings by the likes of Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, Camille Pissarro, and Henri-Edmond Cross, bringing out the differences between the French and the Italian artists, whose emphasis on movement and modeled form prepared the ground for their successors’ easy slide into Futurism.
