"Even before capitalism is overcome, it may be possible to have one foot in both streams, in ways thatprefigure its beyond. In that beyond, quantification would be beholden to surplus-value of life,rather than surplus value of life being slave to accumulation."
(Massumi, 2019).
Hippolyte Petitjean (11 September 1854 – 18 September 1929) was a French Post-Impressionist painter who practiced the technique of pointillism.

When he was 13, Petitjean began his art studies at the Ecole de dessin in Mâcon. The town gave him a grant to continue at the École des Beaux-Arts where he studied under Alexandre Cabanel and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes. He was later influenced by Georges Seurat whom he met in Paris in 1884. After Seurat encouraged him to join the Neo-Impressionists, he was also influenced by Paul Signac and Camille Pissarro. He adopted the pointillist technique until 1894 when he started to combine it with more feathery strokes. In 1910, he returned to Neo-Impressionism with a series of decorative watercolours of landscapes and people set off by widely spaced rounded spots of pure colour.
