Georges Seurat

French Pointillism Painter

Seurat, quiet and intense, had been classically trained at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He was attracted to the Impressionists, with their different approach to art. His feeling that Impressionism lacked discipline (combined with study of scientific writings on color theory) led him to create a new style: pointillism. In this, tiny, detached brushstrokes (dots, really) of pure color are placed closely to one another on the canvas. Together they create a shining, harmonious whole composition.

Important Works:
Bathing at Asnieres, 1883-84
A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, 1885-86
Young Woman Powdering Herself, 1890

The Circus, 1891

Birth: December 2, 1859, Paris, France
Death: March 29, 1891, Paris, France
