Pointillism Paintings

The concept of pointillism is to create solid space of color by using dots of two or more colors in an area. French artist Georges-Pierre Seurat made this technique famous. His painting, Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte (1884-1888) is one of the most famous paintings in the world. (Pictured below)

On the Art Institute of Chicago's website, it says "Seurat was only 26 when he first showed A Sunday on La Grande Jatte-1884 at the eighth annual and final Impressionist exhibition in 1886. In scale, technique, and composition it appeared as a scandalous eruption within Impressionism, a deliberate challenge to its first practitioners, such as Renoir and Monet. It immediately changed the course of vanguard painting, initiating a new direction that was baptized "Neoimpressionism." [1]
