The French artist Georges-Pierre Seurat is a prominent representative of post-impressionism, which made a significant contribution to the development of art. It is he who is the founder of neo-impressionism, as well as the creator of the original style in painting - pointillism (from the word point (point)).

A great impression on Seurat was made by the work of the Impressionists. He admired the freedom to play bright colors on their canvases, but at the same time, he did not adhere to the main principle of impressionism - the immediacy of a fleeting impression, being sure that science and art should not contradict each other, but, on the contrary, they could complement each other.

The artist approached the creation of his own style as a kind of scientific experience, trying to streamline the composition and achieve accuracy in every stroke. With his audience, Seurat spoke a completely new language, through a combination of color dots, strokes, or strokes that form an integral image, it is worth moving a little further from them. During his lifetime, the artist’s masterpieces were not appreciated by his contemporaries. Over the entire period of his work, Seurat was able to sell only a few landscapes. However, subsequent generations have already appreciated his work.

The artist wrote his work “Veil” in 1883. Like most of Seurat’s works, it’s best to look at her, stepping back from the work a few steps. Then the scattered dark strokes of chalk merge into a single whole - a portrait of a lady, whose upper half of her face is covered by a black veil. The predominance of black and overlapping strokes create a heavy atmosphere of anxiety.
