Accompanying a major retrospective of works drawn from numerous international collections, this lavishly illustrated catalogue provides a thorough study of the oeuvre of French Neo-Impressionist Seurat, from his distinctive early drawings through the Pointillist park scenes and seascapes for which he is best known. More than 200 paintings and drawings spanning the artist's career are documented in fine reproductions and lengthy scholarly entries, while 14 essays discuss the artist's life and career, individually examine major works and themes, and reappraise Seurat's art and artistic theories in the context of the Neo-Impressionist movement and in relation to the cultural milieu of late 19th-century France. A detailed chronology of Seurat's career, a discussion of his painted borders and picture frames, transcripts of a variety of letters, documents and inventories, and essays addressing Seurat's critical fortunes in France and his readings in aesthetics and optics are among 16 texts presented in appendixes to the catalogue.
