Post-Impressionist artist Georges Pierre Seurat was an important figure in French art history. He was the founder of pointillism and chromoluminarism, and invented the techniques of conté crayon drawings. He also used these techniques in his own paintings, including the famous landscapes and figures of the Provence region. While the world has admired his work for its beauty, many of his works remain unappreciated today.

In addition to exploring the principles of perspective, Seurat also experimented with colour mixing, placing individual color spots side by side to enhance the vibrancy of the scene.
