My painting is called boy wearing hat. His author is Georges-Pierre Seurat. It was a French pointillist and the founder of neo-impressionism.His first painting was Bañistas en Asnierès. His work A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte is one of the icons of the nineteenth century painting. Georges born in Paris, France on December 2 of 1859 in rich family.Georges Seurat first studied art with Justin Lequiene, a sculptor. Seurat attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1878 and 1879.He shared a small studio on the Left Bank with two student friends.In 1885 he moved from the Boulevard the Clichy to a quieter studio nearby, where he lived secretly with a young model, Madeline Knobloch. In February 1890 she gave birth to this son. It was not until two days before his dead that he introduced his young family to his parentes. Shortily after his dead, Madeline gave birth to her second son whose name is unknown and who died at birth or soon after. He died on March 29, 1891 in Paris, France, George died When I was 31 years old by an infeccious disease called diphtheria. He don´t mix the colours, and he don´t use a contorn to delimit the objet. And he don´t use the colour black to reflect it.
