Who doesn’t want to owe these exquisite , artistic beauties at such minimal price.Today’s spotlight is on the creator of pointillism

George Seurat – Georges Seurat was an exceptional talent who sparked a revolutionary new painting technique and inspired an art movement called Pointillism, which was a vibrantly different artistic style where paintings were comprised of tiny colorful dots. He began the distinctive artistic movement that was said to combine science and art. The theories on color were based around the basic principle that if two colored dots overlapped that third color would be formed from a distance. He portrayed scenes through the use of points of colors in close proximity to each other in order to depict a scene.

Ocher Art Georges Seurat Le Chahut.jpg

 

La Chahut  – This painting depicts a cadre of performers performing the cancan on stage in front of a bass violinist and an orchestral band. Seurat’s use of composition is perhaps the biggest indicator of his views of Parisian nightlife. The figures to the right of the piece performing the cancan are perhaps the most eye catching and their synchronized form almost make them appear as one entity. The main color theme in Seurat’s work is orange and brown. Such an effect is created by his use of lighting and how it reacts in juxtaposition with other darker colors. Seurat’s brush strokes or the lines he creates with such strokes, support his theories of emotions evoked in paintings than his use of color do. His female performer’s skirt creates perhaps the biggest and most eye catching upward line of the painting and its curvature is echoed in everything from her smile to her fellow male performer’s moustache.

 

Ocher Art Georges Seurat The Circus.jpg

 

 

 

The Circus – It  is famously known as Georges Seurat’s final work before his death. Its subject matter is that of the circus, the presence of which increased rapidly towards the end of the 19th century. The Circus captures the emotion and movement of one portion of a circus scene. The clown at the front of the piece stands out with white make-up-clad skin against scarlet hair and dress. The smartly dressed ringmaster to the right is placed just in front of a menagerie of clowns and an acrobat who is jumping in front of him. The focal point of the piece is the young woman who is boldly riding the wild white horse to the left-center of the work. Seurat’s theories on brush stroke and its relation to emotion are well developed here. The Circus is full of upwards strokes denoting gaiety towards the front of the painting, where the majority of the action is taking place. Everything in this section of the painting is accentuated to a peak, most notably the hair of both the clown at the front and the performer on the horse. The three primary colors for this work – red, yellow and orange – resemble that of a flame at different temperatures.
