Anyone know this artist?

Our GD took a photo of this painting at Musee DíOrsay. Iíd like to include it in her photo album.
Iím not familiar with the artist but it must have been something she liked.

Anyone know the artist?

Sassy beat me to it . . . One of my favorite artists . . .

There are several Seurat's in London too - I think at least a dozen in the National Gallery alone.

There was even a postage stamp of that painting in 1969.

That is The Circus - an oil on canvas painting. It was painted by Georges Seurat in 1891 and the painting is located at the Musťe d'Orsay in Paris.
