This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Georges Lemmen was born in Schaarbeek, nearby Brussels Belgium.  As the son of an architect, he was encouraged by his father in his artistic leanings.  His father enrolled him in the local art academy, but Georges quickly tired of the tedious instructors and soon school dropped out.

Inspired by his friendship with Georges Seurat, Lemmen began experimenting with Divisionism and adopted a Pointillist style. This unique style of painting is characterized by a methodical and scientific technique known as Pointillism* or Divisionism*. 

Pointillism painters juxtaposed small dots of pure color together to maximize luminosity. The dots appeared to intermingle and blend in the spectator's eye. During this period Lemmen created his signature work, focusing on scenes of tranquility and harmony while emphasizing a sense of balance and clarity of outline.

Lemmen continued painting the Pointillist style until mid 1895.  After 1895, Lemmen discarded the Pointillism style and aligned himself with the Art Nouveau* movement, and produced man book illustrations, posters, and paintings in this style.
