The early drawings and oil paintings of Georges Seurat (1859-1891) explored the qualities of materials and light. From his studies of colour and perception he developed his theory of divisionism and the process of 'pointillism' whereby the dots of separate colours are combined by the eye to give the illusion of colour mixing. The film also contains interviews with Henry Moore and Bridget Riley.
