Contents Seurat as seen through his own writings, through comments by his contemporaries, and by other artists -- Critical approaches to the art of Seurat, 1898 to the present
Summary This book examines the controversial art of Georges Seurat. Writings by the artist and such contemporary critics as Felix Feneon, as well as studies by recent scholars including J. Carson Weber and William Innes Homer, explode the myths and resolve the misconceptions that stubbornly cling to this artist and to his infamous technique of painting with small dots of pure color. Such noted writers and critics as Roger Fry, Robert Rey, and Daniel Catton Rich evaluate Seurat's art in formalist terms, as the product of a classical sensibility. Other scholars, including Meyer Shapiro, Robert Herbert, and Norma Broude, discuss Seurat's prophetically positive response to modern technology, suggesting the crucial ways in which Seurat influenced the development of twentieth-century art
