About Le Pont de Courbevoie

Le Pont de Courbevoie is a cityscape painting created by the artist Georges Seurat in the Pointillism and Neo-Impressionism styles. The artwork showcases the area on the Seine close to the factories of Clichy, which can be seen in the distance. The painting highlights a Parisian suburb across the Seine, which might be either Asnières or Courbevoie.

The painting is one of Seurat’s first significant canvases, and it is kept at the Courtauld Gallery in London. Seurat is famous for devising the painting techniques known as chromoluminarism and pointillism. The Pont de Courbevoie painting is an excellent example of his innovative use of drawing media as it uses the pointillism approach, which entailed placing colored dots side by side to create an image.
