Georges Seuratwas the ultimate example of the artist as scientist and spent
his life studying color theories and the effects of different linear
structures. He was one of the founders of the 19th-century French school of
Neo-Impressionism. His technique involved using tiny brushstrokes of
contrasting colours to create the surface of his work and then the viewers
eye would mix the dabs of color portraying the play of ligh. Siurat
created large compositions with tiny, individual strokes of pure colour too
small to be distinguished when looking at the entire work.
