Georges Seurat (1859–1891) was only 31 when he died, but his short life, blazed with inspiration, vision and creativity, altered the course of European painting.
A passionate observer of light and color interactions, Seurat studied Delacroix during his time at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His studies led him to develop the concept of Neoimpressionism, which in turn, resulted in the radical approach of Divisionism.
In this introduction to Seurat’s life and work, we meet an artist driven by a profound need to articulate nature, harmony and the simple pleasures of life in dense, kinetic tones and lines.
