Le Cirque by George Seurat
The painting, "Le Cirque" by George Seurat is a busy and intricate piece of work that is made up of points and lines. He uses stippling by arranging several points to create the image, specifically the floor and the horse. Pointillism, which was founded by Seurat, is evident in this painting since he uses the mixture of small dabs of color to create the image. He uses a variety of color to clearly display what is going at the circus, and the people in the crowd watching intently. I think that this painting is exciting because it is colorful and has a lot going on. It captures the attention of the audience and allows for an accurate perspective of what the artist is trying to depict.
