Georges Seurat

Data de nascimento: 2. Dezembro 1859
Data de falecimento: 29. Março 1891


Georges-Pierre Seurat foi um pintor francês e pioneiro do movimento pontilhista, também chamado divisionismo. A personalidade artística de Seurat era contraposta por qualidades supostamente opostas e incompatíveis: de um lado, a sua sensibilidade extrema e delicada; do outro, uma paixão pela abstração lógica e uma precisão matemática da mente. O seu maior trabalho, Uma Tarde de Domingo na Ilha de Grande Jatte , alterou a direção da arte moderna ao iniciar o Neo-impressionismo e é um dos ícones da pintura do século XIX.
