Hippolyte Petitjean (11 septembrie 1854, Mâcon – 18 eptembrie 1929, Paris) a fost un pictor post-impresionist francez care a practicat tehnica pointilista.

Petitjean si-a inceput  studiile de  arta la 13 ani,  la Ecole de dessin in Mâcon. Orasul i-a dat o bursa sa-si continue studiile la École des Beaux-Arts unde a studiat sub indrumarea lui Alexandre Cabanel si Pierre Puvis de Chavannes. Mai tarziu a fost influentat de Georges Seurat pe care l-a cunoscut in Paris in 1884. Dupa ce Seurat l-a incurajat sa se alature neo-impresionistilor, el a fost influentat si de Paul Signac si Camille Pissarro. A adoptat  tehnica pointilista pana in 1894 cand a inceput sa o combine cu tuse usoare. In 1910 s-a reintors la neo-impresionism cu o serie de acuarele decorative cu peisaje si persoane evidentiate cu pete de culoare pura.

Petitjean a expus la Salon des Indépendants in 1891, apoi la Le Brac de Bouteville impreuna cu simbolistii si impresionistii. De asemenea a expus in Bruxelless in 1893 si 1898, Berlin in 1898, Weimar in 1903 si Wiesbaden in 1921.

Theodore Clement Steele (11 septembrie 1847 – 24 iulie 1926) a fost un pictor impresionist american care a pictat peisaje din Indiana.  In afara de pictura, Steele a contribuit la scrierea de articole, lecturi publice si a servit comunitatea facand parte din juriile care selectau participantii la expozitii  nationale si internationae, cele mai importante fiind Expozitia Universala (1900) din Paris, Franta, precum si Louisiana Purchase Exposition (1904) din Saint Louis, Missouri. A fost implicat si in organizarea primelor asociatii de arta, ca de exemplu Society of Western Artists.

Steele s-a nascut in langa Gosport din Owen County, Indiana, pe 11 septembrie  1847, a fost cel mai mare copil al lui Samuel Hamilton si Harriett Newell Evans Steele.Tatal lui Steele a fost șelar si fermier. In 1852  familia s-a mutat la Waveland in Montgomery County, Indiana, unde Steele a inceput sa fie interesat in arta si a inceput sa deseneze.

Steele a inceput sa studieze arta la Waveland Collegiate Institute (Waveland Academy).La 16 ani si-a continuat studiile la Asbury College (acum DePauw University) in Greencastle, Indiana. Steele a studiat si in Chicago, Illinois, precum si in Cincinnati, Ohio, dupa care s-a reintors in Indiana unde a inceput sa picteze portrete la comanda.

In 1870 Steele s-a casatorit cu Mary Elizabeth Lakin si au avut trei copii.

Pentru a-si desavarsi studiile in arta, Steele a obtinut un sprijin financiar de la prietenul si protectorul sau, Herman Lieber, astfel ca  Steele a ajuns sa studieze la Academia de Arte frumoase din München. In scopul de a studia mai departe, inca 13 sponsori l-au  ajutat pe Steele. In 1880 familia Steele a calatorit in Europa impreuna cu colegii din grupul Hoosiers de pictori impresionisti,  J. Ottis Adams, Carrie Wolf, August Metzner si Samuel Richards. Doi ani mai tarziu si pictorul William Forsyth s-a alaturat grupului  Hoosier. Lui Steele ii placea sa pictze in aer liber astfel ca a pictat multe peisaje.

Dupa ce s-a reintors la Indianapolis, Steele si-a deschis un atelier unde a pictat ca sa-si castige existenta ca portretist si ca profesor de arta.

In perioada verii, Steele isi lua familia la tara, unde picta peisaje rurale. Deseori il insotea acolo si prietenul sau, artistul William Forsyth.

In 1899 Steele a devenit membru in juriul care selecta picturi americane care sa participe la Expozitia Universala de la Paris din 1900

In december 1925, Steele a suferit un atac de cord. Desi si-a revenit si a continuat sa picteze, el s-a imbolnavit in iunie anul urmator si a murit acasa in Brown County pe 24 iulie 1926.
