Post impressionist French artist, Georges Seurat (1859 – 1891) expanded on Vermeer’s pointillist style, painting dots of broken color optically mixed by the viewer’s eyes. This painting, Bathers at Asniers (1882 – 1884) was not painted with pointillist technique but Seurat later added areas of dots to create a luminous style. You can see dots of complementary colors, blue and orange added to the hat. Seurat used clear color and forms. His compositions were academic in nature. Notice the white lines behind the two major figures. The lines push the figures forward from the background and emphasize these figures.
