Description of this painting
Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte is an iconic painting of the 19th century Pointillism movement by French artist Georges Seurat.
The subject could not be more traditional. It is a dislocated daily scene that could be seen in the surroundings of the Grande Gatte, on the banks of the Seine, where the different social classes stroll or rest on its banks.
What is interesting about this painting is that Seurat used a technique of "divisionism" or "pointillism" in which he built the image from small colored dots that melt in the viewer's eye to create the entire image.
Furthermore, the painting is one of the largest in size within the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago, where it currently resides. It has also been the subject of a great deal of analysis and criticism, including an exploration of composition and Seurat's use of light and color to achieve his desired effect.
Another interesting aspect of "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" is that the painting depicts a scene from everyday life in a park on the banks of the Seine River in Paris. The work was created during a time when the city was undergoing a major urban and social transformation, with the rise of a new middle class that sought to enjoy their leisure time in public places.
Seurat spent two years working on the painting and carried out numerous preparatory studies in which he investigated the light and color effects that he wanted to capture in the final work. The painting was first exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants in Paris in 1886 and made a huge impact on the art scene of the time, establishing Seurat as one of the leading exponents of Pointillism.
The work has inspired numerous artists and has been referenced in popular culture, such as in the 1986 film "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
Sunday Afternoon On The Island Of La Grande Jatte is ranked no. 18 on the list of famous paintings
