Georges Seurat

By Hajo Düchting

“Georges Seurat (1859-1891) literally ‘got to the point’ in a career that lasted little more than a decade but revolutionized painting technique. He spearheaded a new movement (Neoimpressionism) and brought a degree of scientific rigor to investigations of color that would prove profoundly influential. This book surveys the master pointillist’s life and work.”

Georges Seurat

By Iain Zaczek

“When one thinks of Georges Seurat, one artistic technique should come to mind: pointillism. Through Seurat’s study of color and light, he came to use tiny dots to create gorgeous, unique colors. Readers see full-color photographs of some of his most famous pieces, such as A Sunday Afternoon on La Grande Jatte. Close-up images of small parts of the works call readers’ attention to interesting details, like the child in this painting who’s looking straight out of the canvas. Through clear instructions, readers can learn how to do a pointillist painting, too–if they have the patience!” Ages 8-11
