Georges Seurat

$ 2.99

The founder of the nineteenth century French school of Neo-Impressionism, Georges Seurat devised the technique of Pointillism, portraying the play of light with tiny brushstrokes of contrasting colours. A man of studious habits and a scientific mind, Seurat employed his original technique to create huge compositions with tiny, detached strokes of pure colour too small to be distinguished when looking at the entire work, though when viewed from a distance, shimmered with brilliance. In spite of his short life, he left behind him an incredible body of work that would have a lasting impact on the history of modern art. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Seurat’s complete paintings in beautiful detail, with concise introductions and hundreds of high quality images. (Version 1)
