The archives of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts show that Seurat entered in February 1878. Of the 80 best students admitted to the class in painting on March 19, 1878, Seurat was rated 67th. At the end of the summer semester he dropped to 73rd on the list. However, on the report for March 18, 1879, Seurat occupies the 47th place. See R. Rey, La Renaissance du sentiment classique, p. 101.
