Port en Bessin, The Outer Harbor, Low Tide - Georges Seurat
This variant is currently sold out
- Date of Creation: 1888
- Art Movement: Pointillism, Post-Impressionism
Georges Seurat produced this painting while spending the summer at the Normandy resort of Port-en-Bessin. He captures the port with details such as a sail in the foreground and flagpoles in the distance. The work displays Seurat’s signature “pointillist” touch, or the practice of applying small dots of color to the canvas which blend together at a distance. A strong geometrical structure provides a sense of calm and order, reflecting the artist’s aim to make the ephemeral moment suggest the eternal.
About the Artist:
Georges Seurat (1859 - 1891), painter, founder of the 19th-century French school of Neo-Impressionism whose technique for portraying the play of light using tiny brushstrokes of contrasting colours became known as Pointillism. Using this technique, he created huge compositions with tiny, detached strokes of pure colour too small to be distinguished when looking at the entire work but making his paintings shimmer with brilliance.
