Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

a friend of Seurat; as quoted in Seurat in Perspective, ed. Norma Broude, Englewood Cliffs, n. J., Prentice-Hall, 1978, p. 31

Not only did he [Seurat] never begin his paintings without knowing where he was going, but his concern went even beyond their success as individual works. They had no great meaning for him if they did not prove some rule, some truth of art, or some conquest of the unknown.
