Seurat and Van Gogh

Instructor: Michael Rossman, MFA

When Van Gogh arrived in Paris in 1886, he immediately visited the eighth and last impressionist exhibition, where he saw the work of George Seurat. Enthralled by Seurat’s theories of color and his understanding of the interaction of hues, Van Gogh may have begun to emulate Seurat’s methods. This seminar examines the Barnes’s Seurats and select works by Van Gogh to compare their conception of color. This workshop also considers works like The Postman, in which Van Gogh advanced innovations that have influenced several generations of twentieth- and twenty- first-century artists.
