Georges Seurat Paintings

Georges Seurat paintings are the finest works to have come from the pointilism art movement and Seurat is seen as the spearhead of this exciting style which involved great numbers of carefully coloured dots which together would create the final piece. George Seurat's most famous painting is certainly Sunday on La Grande Jatte as well as Bathers at Asnieres and these were exceptional, large scale paintings that required large amounts of preparatory study. You can also find Seurat paintings here.

Georges Seurat paintings predominantly cover landscapes in well selected colour which was a major hallmark of the style of Seurat. The Frenchman spent much time studying and theorising about color and particularly about it's effect when several colours were combined together. This attention to detail is also seen closeup when examining any of his pointilist paintings, into which a huge amount of detail and care was placed.

French art has a history of inventing and developing new techniques and ways of thinking within art ever since around the rise of the impressionists in the mid 1850s. One of these that followed several years later was pointilism which became what Seurat was best known for. Several other artists also achieved enjoyment and success within this art movement, but it is certainly Seurat who is most closely linked to this technique which involved the careful distribution of coloured dots.

Sunday on La Grande Jatte is a huge and exceptionally detailed painting which remains one of the most loved French works of all time, particularly within the modern era. Each area of this landscape scenes was carefully planned with series of study pieces created so that each and every character within the work would look lifelike and fit within the overall composition perfectly. Many of these study sketches and paintings are also well known today too thanks to the success of the main Sunday Afternoon on the Island of la Grande Jatte painting.

Georges Seurat finally completed Sunday Afternoon on the Island of la Grande Jatte in 1886 following several years amendments to it as well as other art works that concentrated on specific areas of this highly detailed work. The technique involved with pointilism means that this original work will always be best viewed from a reasonable distance so that the eye can be tricked by the painted dots. A closeup look will reveal the methods behind it and fail to show the overall shapes that they produce.

Seine at Grande Jatte is yet another pointilist landscape which was where Seurat felt most comfortable in his career having developed the method himself in conjunction with the color studies which he was passionately continuing for the benefit of his work and also his own curiosity. Seine at Grande Jatte would have been completed in a similar spot to several of his other best known works and this was clearly an area of France that Georges preferred for his landscape works.

Pointilism is part of an overall umbrella category of both post-impressionism and neo-impressionism and marks another example of the development of art away from traditional styles seen in the Renaissance and Baroque periods towards the full abstract ideas that we enjoy in the modern day. It is incredible to see what Seurat achieved in such a saddeningly short life and his legacy was immense despite the illnesses that cut his life short so early.

Circus marked an unusual topic for Seurat but this painting has gone on to become one of his best known, thanks to some charming depictions within it. Georges Seurat managed to keep his reputation and legacy very individual as the art movement in which he was involved did not really include many other well known painters, and so his life still stands by itself in terms of this creative art technique that has found great popularity across the western world ever since he brought it to the mainstream.

Le Chahut is another fine painting from Seurat which followed a similar style to the Circus painting as featured above. It is easy to see why Georges Seurat paintings are so very popular and many love to buy his original works as fine art print reproductions, posters or stretched canvases. It is not easy to find accurate reproductions of Seurat paintings because of his pointilist style which requires exceptional attention to detail as well as sufficient time to get the desired result.
