PersonC. Post impressionism

a Sunday on La Grande Jatte,Georges-Pierre Seurat, painted in 1884

The reason i chose this painting is because it's landscape shows it's day where everybody goes outside an relax or some have fun with their animals. The reason I chose to study this artist Georges-pierre Seurat is because he is a french impressionist and draftsman and the technique known as chromoluminarism.

He made layers of small horizontal brushstrokes of complementary colors. He later added small dots, also in complementary colors, that appear as solid and luminous forms when seen from a distance. He also used the scientific technique,called Pointillism, distinguished his art from the more intuitive approach to painting used by the Impressionists.
He want to make modern people, in their essential traits, move about as they do on those friezes, and place them on canvases organized by harmonies of color.
