Notes: The mosaic-like handling of the paint in Paysage Tropical together with exotic references unite to create a quintessential example of Metzinger’s early works and a unique example of early twentieth-century art. The combination of Divisionist techniques, exoticism, purity of color, and brilliance of effect, sets it apart from works typically associated with Neo-Impressionism or Fauvism.
