Pointilismus   •   Georges Seurat @ Wikipedia

Georges Seurat, who was only granted a lifetime of thirty-one years, dealt with painting, the handling of colors, scientifically. Even as a student, he dealt with color theories. While initially associated with the Impressionists, Seurat's paintings were not systematical enough. Unlike many of his fellow painters, he was able, thanks to an inheritance, to devote himself to his work without any material worries.

His methodical nature, the Impressionist colleagues called him "notary," is reflected in his paintings as he gradually developed pointillism. He juxtaposed individual color points of pure colors in an attentive manner, in order to make the colors appear more intense. When viewed from a distance, these color points blend into a multifaceted whole. Each picture required extensive preparatory work to determine the effect of the colors and to compose a whole.
