First Impressions 5 - Name The Artist


This French Neo-Impressionist developed a new technique of painting. He was interested in scientific colour theory. He didn't mix much colour on the palette; his colours blended optically.

Who is this creator of truly scintillating masterpieces?

I narrowed it down, picked my answer and then went searching for the photo. I got it right! (and I won't give it away).

I seem to recall that even Matisse waa intrigued for a while when he painted studies for 'Lux, Calme et Volupt in 1904, if previous comments have answered the question.

Georges Seurat. I just saw a wonderful documentary on his "Park" picture and how he painted it, why and what happened to it after it was painted.

I was going to mention Bernadette Peters - wasn't she in "Sunday in the Park With Georges"?

Seurat did dots! (A poster I created for elementary art students) I'm visiting from Poetikat's blog. Please let me know where you find Earth shoes!
