Seurat's Conté colored pencil drawings are less famous than his paintings, but they have also garnered much critical acclaim. Seurat's artistic personality combined characteristics that should normally be opposed and incompatible: on the one hand his extreme and delicate sensitivity, on the other hand a passion for logical abstraction and an almost mathematical precision of the mind. His large-format work A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte (1884–1886) changed the direction of modern art through the initiation of Neo-Impressionism and is one of the icons of painting of the late 19th century. Seurat is also praised for his technique of pointillism, which almost scientifically breaks down the color surface into dots of color that blend from a distance.

Georges-Pierre Seurat (*2 December 1859 in Paris; † 29 March 1891 Paris) was a French Post-Impressionist artist. He is best known for developing the painting techniques known as chromoluminarism and pointillism. Georges-Pierre Seurat was the third child of Ernestine Faivre and Antoine-Chrysostome Seurat. He was born on December 2, 1859 in Paris into a middle-class family. He entered the École des Beaux-Arts in 1878. He then studied with Henri Lehman. Together with artists such as Paul Signac, Albert Dubois-Pilllet and Odilon Redon, he was responsible for the Salon des Indépendents, which they established as an alternative to the state-sponsored salon exhibitions.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.
