Georges-Pierre Seurat (1859-1891), was a French painter, representative of Neo-impressionism. He was the founder of Pointillism, an innovative technique of painting which is based on building the composition of the painting through imposition of closely spaced, multicoloured points and lines. Seurat created intelectual painting which is systematic and subortinated to rules and principles. His artistic activity consists mainly of outdoor compositions, mostly paintings which are connected with marine subject-matter. The most important and the finest painting by Seurat is the one titled 'A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of la Grande Jatte', which is characterised by geometrical shapes and accumulation of small, coloured dots. In the late period of his artistic activity Seurat adjusted his technique (invented by himself) to the interior scenes. Then such famous paintings were created as 'Young woman powdering herself'', 'Models' and 'Circus Sideshow'.
