About Georges Seurat

Georges Seurat was a founder of Post-Impressionism, a movement that arose in France between 1886 and 1906. Seurat rejected the spontaneity of Impressionism in favor of a more methodical technique grounded in science and the study of optics, known as Pointillism. Included in the last Impressionist exhibition in Paris in 1886, Seurat’s most famous painting, A Sunday on La Grande Jatte (1884), features the small, layered brushstrokes of complementary and contrasting hues that he championed.
