Employing a transversal tactic, Quinsac analyses the sociopolitical, historical, and ideological context that characterised Italian divisionism, from Segantini&#8217s Avemaria a trasbordo (1886, the initially Divisionist function), by the Symbolism of the 1890s, and up to the Futurist revolution, underscoring the ever-switching interpretations of critics by way of the current.

Artists viewed as: Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, Vittore Grubicy de Dragon, Giovanni Segantini, Jean François Millet, Gaetano Previati, Angelo Morbelli, Plinio Nomellini, Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo, Emilio Longoni, Attilio Pusterla, Carlo Fornara Ernest Meissonier, Jules Breton, Alfred Roll, Jules Adler Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà, Luigi Russolo, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini (and some others basically made use of for the sake of comparison).
