French 🇫🇷 1859 - 1891
Georges Seurat was a French painter and is largely credited with kicking off the Neo-Impressionist movement with his piece Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. This piece is arguably his most famous work, and has earned its place in the canon of Western art history.
It took Seurat two years to complete Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.
Some say they see poetry in my paintings. I see only science.
