Originally published more than forty years ago, a study of the master of pointillism by a highly respected historian of impressionism has been complemented with reproductions of all of the artist's major works, preparatory sketches, and studies.

From Library Journal:

First published in English translation in 1943, and in a second edition in 1946 by Wittenborn and Company, this well-documented essay examines the life and work of the secretive, brilliant artist and provides 173 reproductions, 118 of which are in color; some are seen here first from private collections. In his short life--he died at 31--Seurat's disciplined studies brought reason through analysis and synthesis to Impressionist painting, relating it more closely to science. Although championed by Felix Feneon, a noted symbolist who was interviewed by Rewald for this book, Seurat's applied principles of color theory and light were scorned in his day, even by Impressionists, except Pissarro, who ardently admired him, then abandoned the pointillist technique. If you don't have an original printing of this scholarly text, the new edition, with extensive retranslation from the original French; a chapter that appears in English for the first time, as do the color reproductions; and an updated, comprehensive bibliography, is essential for art collections.
