History Of Impressionism
Georges Pierre Seurat
(2 December 1859 â€“ 29 March 1891)
was a French Post-Impressionist painter and draftsman. He is noted for his innovative use of drawing media and for devising the technique of painting known as pointillism. His large-scale work A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte (1884â€“1886) altered the direction of modern art by initiating Neo-impressionism. It is one of the icons of late 19th-century painting.
