Georges Pierre Seurat (1859-1891) French Post Impressionist and Pointilist painter who lived between the years.
Seurat was a reaction to the rules of impressionism. Artists such as Seurat, who are representatives of the post-impressionism, started their art life with Impressionism. However, they wanted to overcome some limitations of this movement and add their personality to their paintings. Georges Seurat developed Point technique by putting opposing colors side by side. Along with Paul Signac, Pointilism also provided the development of the current. He painted his paintings like mosaics using small dots. He argued that colors would fuse into our brains. This item was later called pointilism. All lines were removed, and the picture was simplified to preserve the order. The forerunner of the punctuation technique, Seurat argued that the dots would unite in our brain and create integrity. On the other hand, there is no feeling of volumeiness in these works.
