OriginEdit

Georges-Pierre Seurat (1859 - 1891) was a French post-Impressionist painter and draftsman. Noted for his innovational use of drawing media and for devising the painting techniques known as chromoluminarism (requiring the viewer to combine the colors optically instead of physically) and pointillism (using small, distinct dots of color). The large-scale work, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, altered the direction of modern art by initiating Neo-impressionism, becoming one of the icons of the late 19th-century. The painting took two years to complete, much of that time he spent in a peaceful park sketching in preparation for the work. The peace and tranquility he was trying to show was imbued into the painting itself.
