Vagabond [After Georges-Pierre Seurat]
Georges-Pierre Seurat (1859 - 1891) is considered to be one of the most important post-impressionist painters. He looked to abandon the impressionists’ obsession with catching fleeting moments and sought to depict more permanent concepts.
He’s often remembered for pioneering a technique known as Pointillism, which involves using thousands of dots to build an image.
This particular piece is a vintage gravure of a vagabond that was originally a chalk sketch. It was reproduced for a portfolio of master drawings and that’s what you see here.
The gravure process involves carefully etching an image onto a cylinder across a gridded pattern of tiny cells. The cells are recessed to allow the ink to gather within them at different intensities.
Please just ask if you would like this painting to be framed and we will try to source something appropriate for its age. We only charge for the cost of the actual frame (approximately £30) and include the framing process for free.
