When Seurat died suddenly on March 29, 1891, Angrand became heartbroken with grief and spiraled into a deep depression. For a long while the joy and brightness seemed to leave Angrand and he gave up painting. He went to Normandy and gave up painting. Angrand died disillusion by the art world in 1926.
Angrand revealed himself to be strongly gifted from the start of his painting career. His early Pointillist paintings reveal a strong foundation in drawing. His colors are amazingly dazzling. He painted women with a airy naturalness and sensitivity. His larger portraits, landscapes with figures and seascapes reveal him as a lover of light. Charles Angrand's airy palette tended to more far more whimsical than his fellow painters. He subject matter focused on quaint Parisian neighborhoods, nudes bathing by rivers, the French countryside and serious interior scenes.
Angrand juxtaposed small dots of pure color
together to maximize luminosity. The dots appeared to intermingle and
blend in the observer's eye. He rejected the haphazard spontaneity of
Impressionism in support of this radical innovative painting technique.
