The commentary is pedantic and repetitive. Not the best DVD on art appreciation.

There must be something wrong with the electronic cataloging of this item (a DVD about Seurat) since it seems meshed with, at least in the comment feature with others in the same series.
The audio coming from the art historians is rather weak and one has to blast the volume to hear them at moments.
About the artist though, this is better than most. It explains his brief life (died at 31 years) and his theory of colour perception. Many of the other paintings he made shortly before his death are dealt with. His preparations, which were numerous, for his most famous work ('Afternoon on...') are unfortunately only alluded to briefly.

Though he lived a short life, Seurat fulfilled his potential as an artistic giant. This survey points out the subtleties in his developments.

Good DVD for information. Can get a little boring at times, though...
