Childhood
  • Georges was born in 1859 in Paris, France
  • In his youth, an amateur artist (who was a
    relative) introduced Seurat to painting
  • In 1875 Seurat made friends with Edmond-Francois
    Aman-Jean at an art class

Ecole des Beaux-Arts
  • In 1878, both Seurat and Aman-Jean were enrolled
    into the Ecole-des Beaux art school
  • They both joined an art class that was taught by
    Henri Lehmann
  • It wasnt long though, before Seurat left the
    Ecole des Beaux-Arts

Art in a Life
  • One of Seurats most famous artworks was A Sunday
    Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte
  • In a lot of his paintings, Seurat used
    pointillism. And one example is A Sunday
    Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte

An End
  • Seurat unexpectedly died of a sickness in 1891.
    He was only thirty-two years old
  • And though he died so young, he influenced art
    and artists with the great style he created in
    just a short career
  • Pointillism is a way of life, not
    a painting
  • system.
