Happy Birthday to Neo-Impressionist painter Georges Seurat who was born on this day in 1859. Despite its small size, this painting shows the technique that Seurat is most famous for –pointillism. Would you be up for the challenge of counting each dot?! If you are, head to Galley 152 where this painting is now on view. 
“Moored Boats and Trees," 1890, Georges Seurat
