Georges Seurat (1859 - 1891)

Georges Seurat was born on December 2, 1859, in Paris. In 1875 he attended the municipal school of sculptor Justin Lequien. From March 1878 to November 1879 he was enrolled in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. After a year of military service on the Breton coast, Seurat returned to Paris. From the late 1870s his interest in current scientific theories about color perception and chromatics grew.

Throughout the late 1880s, he summered on the Channel coast, working outdoors from the landscape and following the example of Impressionism in selecting his subject matter. In the late 1880s he expanded his depictions of bourgeois Parisian life to include scenes of circuses and cabarets.

Georges Seurat was 31 when he passed away on March 29, 1891 in Paris, after a brief bout with pneumonia or meningitis.
