Georges Seurat 1859 – 1891 was a French painter and draftsman, and one of the leading artists of the Post-Impressionist movement. He is known for his technique of painting, pointillism, which involved the use of small, distinct dots of color that, when viewed from a distance, blend together to create a cohesive image. He was heavily influenced by the scientific theories of color and perception. - Picryl description
