Although his career was cut short by an early death, Seurat achieved much in the late 1800’s. He studied the Impressionists and devised a new style called Neo-Impressionism or Pointilism. Like the Impressionists, Seurat’s work often depicts the world around him, but his almost scientific approach to painting is unique and still fascinating today. We will look at his well-known works such as “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of the Grand Jatte,” and discuss how his interest in color theory influenced him artistically.
