The Influence of Georges Seurat (d 3-29-1891)


The image of my photographic print, Sophia, atop this entry is one from a collection of my black and white photographs featured on my website.*

Sophia appeared in a couple of my exhibitions in NYC and was one of my pictures that was  ultimately discussed on a radio program (The Al Lewis Show) for WBAI hosted by Karen Ingenthorn Lewis.

The image was printed by me using a technique I developed at the inspiration of Georges Seurat, who is known for devising the painting techniques known as chromoluminarism and pointillism.

Seurat was born on December the second in 1859 and died one hundred and twenty-eight days ago on this day of Marcy the twenty-ninth in 1891. One of his paintings, A Sunday on La Grande Jatte ...

... often comes to my mind when I'm in the park on a Sunday and it has been the inspiration for a number of my entries here on Blogger.  Evidently this painting was the inspiration for a cartoon by Bill Whitehead as evidenced directly below.


Seurat certainly has left quite a legacy, influencing people from all walks of life, so it seems fitting to honor his life on this one hundred and twenty eighth year of his passing.
