MoMA: Georges Seurat

MoMA: Georges Seurat

I have loved Georges Seurat’s art since I was in high school French class! We studied all the major French artists as part of our course work one year. Seurat is best known for the painting “A Sunday on La Grande Jatte” and as the inventor of pointillism, but there is so much more to his artwork that’s often forgotten. This Web site explores his art, his techniques and his brief life.

Simply click Enter the Site to begin. That will open a new page that should be defaulted to full screen. You’ll see an introduction and a side menu. If you click on the image to the side of the introduction, it will enlarge it so that you can see all the details.

The side menu contains three areas you can explore: Sketchbooks, Conservation and Subjects.

Sketchbooks – Here you will find four handheld sketchbooks filled with Seurat’s sketches. You can either click the image of the sketchbook you’d like to view or click the title of the sketchbook near the top of the page. Each sketchbook is interactive and you can click through it as though the book was right in front of you.

Conservation – This section delves into the materials and techniques Seurat used in his work. It is divided into three sections: Materials, Techniques and Wood Panels and Textured Grounds. Use the numbers along the bottom of the page in each section to navigate forward through the topic. It was very fascinating to read how he used wood panels, paper with oils and conté crayons to create his art.

Subjects – Now, we focus on the subjects of his work. This section is divided into four separate areas: Paris and its Environs, Asnières, La Grande Jatte and The Café-Concert. Again, use the numbers along the bottom of the page in each section to navigate forward through the topic. Each one discusses the people and places featured in Seurat’s work.

I hope you enjoy delving into Seurat’s art as much as I did!
