Parisian born, Georges Seurat was a late 19th-century modernist painter who was as interested in science as he was in painting.  In many art history books, he is credited as being the innovator of Pointillism.  However, his methods were complicated enough that Pointillism is only partially descriptive of his accomplishments, and the more accurate description is "founder of the 19th-century French school of Neo-Impressionism.  Using this technique, he created huge compositio (showing 500 of 7116 characters).
