The artist Georges Seurat is one of the world’s most fascinating artists. His technique of pointillism was pivotal in inspiring future generations of painters to think about painting in both individualistic and non-conformist ways. This week’s reading references many artists from different movements (i.e. Pablo Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci).
Conduct research on an artist from any movement that you find interesting. Choose one of their works. Analyze the image using the four visual cues from your reading: color, form, depth, and movement. Explain how the artist makes use of these four cues.
In your deconstruction of the image, also explain how the physiology of the eye helps you to see the four cues.
