Georges Seurat believed that harmony in visual art, as in music, obeyed a set of laws that could be learned and applied in a systematic fashion. Combinations of color temperature, tonal balance and line direction corresponded to the emotional effects of calm, gaiety and sadness. He applied color according to the same technical principles as a modern printer, television or computer monitor; as individual dots or patches of pure color which, when perceived at a distance, blend together. Seurat believed that these optically blended colors were more brilliant than the corresponding mix of paint and, indeed, that he was achieving the maximum luminosity that it was possible for his pigments to yield.
