    In the late 1880s Georges Seurat and Paul Signac began a painting technique called pointillism. The technique relies the human brain’s ability to merge individual marks of color into bright smears and smudges—forming objects, conveying ideas, and narrating stories. From far away, each speck is part of something bigger than itself—a shadow, an umbrella, or a woman’s hat. Each speck of oil paint the pointillist marks onto his blank canvas is different in shade, texture, size, and purpose. Specks…

    The four painters I am choosing to discuss are: Claude Monet, Georges Seurat, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent van Gogh.

    I had to understand why Seurat used such a difficult technique for his work. I then came upon the theory that perhaps he wanted to produce a deeper sense of life in his paintings. All things in the world are composed of millions of cells, and these cells create objects, color, and everything that practically exists. I imagine that Seurat's motive was to utilize this scientific law in his work to give an atmosphere of life, texture, and movement in the scenes that he…
