Georges Seurat

December 2, 1859 - March 29, 1891


Georges Seurat (1859-1891) was a French Post-Impressionist painter, known for his stark deviation from the loose and relaxed Impressionist style and exploration into a more rigid style of painting. While Seurat has recieved critical acclaim for his conté crayon drawings, it was his unique and precise painting that caught the eye of the public. He quickly became known for his exceptional use of color and precision, adopting a style called Pointilism. Using this technique, Seurat used small strokes of pure color to create a larger picture, while the divisibility of each dot is rendered nearly invisible to the naked eye. Perhaps one of his most famous pieces, A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, was praised for its exceptional detail and made even more famous after its use in the movie, Ferris Bueller\’s Day Off. Seurat\’s vision of color theory and the perception of the human eye has made a dramatic impact on the trajectory of modern art.
