A biographical DVD about the painter Georges Seurat, known for his pointillism style. As an unknown painter in 1886 Georges Seurat debuted a painting that completely disregarded traditional painting methods and instead used small dots to create shape, color, and form. From that day on his pointillism style grew in recognition. This DVD focuses on analyzing the particular Georges Seurat's painting: "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of of La Grande Jatte". This painting is an excellent example of pointillism and shows many people and dogs languidly lounging or walking on an island during the afternoon. This Georges Sauret program is suitable for art and art history classes. It's a wonderful, highly informational watch for anyone who is a fan of Georges Seurat, post-impressionist art, pointillism painting style, and French art.
