The name of this painting is the View of Fort Samson by Georges Seurat. Seurat was a Post-Impressionist painter and draftsman. He is known for his innovative use of drawing media and for devising a technique of painting known as pointillism. In this painting Seurat uses the technique oil on canvas and use it in a landscape scene. I liked this painting because of its simplicity. I also found it interesting because it reminds me of where I live right on the beach. The grassy dunes leading down to the sandy shoreline.
