"Scandalous!" exclaimed Parisians critics when Georges Seurat first exhibited what is now considered his greatest work, Un dimanche après-midi à l'Ile de la Grande Jatte (Sunday Afternoon on the Island of the Grand Jatte). However, Seurat was used to such criticism. In 1884, his paintings were refused by the Official Salon of Paris, whereupon he joined with several other artists to found the Societe des Artistes Independants.
Seurat utilized scientific methods to study color theories and linear structures. He applied these studies by developing a method known today as Pointillism. Using tiny brushstrokes and dots, Seurat juxtaposed thousands of contrasting colors. The division of color is too small to distinguish when viewing the work as a whole, but the resulting technique creates an optical blending of shimmering brilliance.
