Renowned Art
Maximilien Luce



Maximilien Luce (March 13, 1858–February 6, 1941) was a French artist. A printmaker, painter, and anarchist, Luce gained a modicum of fame using the pointillist methods developed by Georges-Pierre Seurat.

He grew up in the working class Montparnasse, and the breadth of his works focus on blue-collar scenes and everyday struggles and triumphs of the common man. Like Camille Pissaro, Luce was active with anarchist groups in Paris in the 1890s, and in 1894 served a brief prison term. During World War One, Luce painted war scenes, depicting soldiers struggling against the horrors of the Great War. Luce died in Paris in 1941.
