Georges-Pierre Seurat (2 December 185929 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 (1884–1886) altered the direction of modern art by initiating Neo-impressionism.

  • Art is Harmony. Harmony is the analogy of the contrary and of similar elements of tone, of color and of line.
