Abstract At the end of the 19th century, Asnières resembled a seaside resort. The cheering crowd that came to attend the regattas animated the banks of the Seine, and the rowing club was always full. When he painted his canvas, Georges Seurat understood that his current era was turned towards a fascinating and ruthless religion: progress. Determined that art should not remain left out of these drastic changes underway, he invented pointillism. This film analyzes his ground breaking work in terms of industrialization, worker's rights, new leisure activities, transportation infrastructure, and Paris development-as well as in terms of artistic influences, composition, and creativity.
