Divisionism
 
Fast Facts

Seurat is contemporary with Post-Impressionism and is best known for developing the concept he called Divisionism. Seurat employs a highly organized scientific approach to painting in which he uses reason and intellect to govern his choices instead of his intuition as would an Impressionist. In so doing, Seurat believed that he achieved a balance between feeling and theory.
