1859-1891. Georges Seurat was a French Post-Impressionist painter and draftsman. He is noted for his innovative use of drawing media and for devising the painting techniques known as chromuluminarism and pointillism. His large work, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, altered the direction of modern art by initiating Neo-Impressionist, and is one of the icons of the late 19th-century painting.
