Interest in it formed the basis of experiments with the regulation of contrasts of light and shadow and color in a large landscape Bathing in Asnieres (1883-1884, London, Tate Gallery). Next picture Seurat, Sunday stroll on the Island of La Grande Jatte (1884-1886, Chicago Art Institute), was presented at the last Impressionist exhibition in 1886. Here Seurat developed his original technique of painting - small strokes of pure colors, mixed only with whitewash. It is often called pointillism, but the author himself and his followers preferred the term 'divizionizm'. This technique was so complicated that an artist of his short life wrote only seven major tracks, not including landscapes and figures.

Perhaps the name was Felix Feneon, who became a leading critic of this trend in painting.

Seurat died in Paris on March 19, 1891.
