Art: Georges Pierre Seurat

George Pierre Seurat was a master of the art world. Using the canvas as a meeting place for thousands upon thousands tiny dots-Pointillism made it's debut. He worked with both sketching, capturing light/dark effect, as well as color. His art lends me a beautiful resting place...city parks, and watersides...he was truly a gifted man.

Georges Seurat - A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte – 1884 - One of his most famous works and is an example of pointillism which took him over two years to complete. Seurat contrasted miniature dots of colors that, through optical unification, form a single hue in the viewer's eye. Fascinating execution.
