Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book introduces kids to the life and work of Post-Impressionist French artist Georges Seurat. This great artist was best known for inventing Pointillism. If you were to look at one of his paintings closely, you would see that it is made up entirely of little colored dots. Instead of mixing red and yellow paint to make orange, for example, he would put red and yellow dots next to one another on the painting so that the viewer's eye would mix the color right on the canvas. Although Seurat died young (at age 32) and did not produce many works, what he did produce — most notably his masterpiece Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of la Grande Jatte — has had an unending impact on the art world.

Synopsis:

Clever illustrations and story lines, together with full-color reproductions of actual paintings, give children a light yet realistic overview of the life and style of Georges Seurat, the inventor of Pointillism.
