Georges Seurat – A Sunday on La Grande Jatte – 1884 – a Star Wars parody top image by David Hamilton
Seurat developed chromoilluminism and pointillism to create his images. He lived until he was 31 years old in France where he died of several illnesses.
This original bottom image was painted with ochre and dark colors then his “intention was to paint small dots or strokes of pure color that would then mix on the retina of the beholder to achieve the desired color impression instead of the usual practice of mixing individual pigments.” (x)
