Daily Postcard: Seurat-like Snow Falls Over Tall Pine Tree

Daily Postcard: Large and heavy snowflakes cover a pine tree in a way that resembles French artist Georges Seurat’s spotted paintings Wednesday over White Rock. Neo-Impressionists Georges Seurat and Paul Signac pioneered a painting technique, dubbed Pointillism, that was revolutionary for its time. Bored of traditional paintings, artists of the era searched for new ways to make ‘impressions’ of landscapes and day-to-day life. Seurat and Signac looked to science for inspiration and discovered how to trick the eye into seeing more in a painting than the sum of its parts: an arrangement of colored dots.
