A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte
A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte was done by Georges Seurat in 1884-1886, and stood over 6 feet tall, and 10 feet wide. This painting was shown at the last Impressionist exhibition, and artists saw Seurat as being a "Scientific Impressionalist". This painting was amazing because the entire thing was created with dots of color, and Seurat was able to depict the element of space, and was able to create depth to the image. There are alot of things going on in this picture, some of the figures are relaxing, and others are in motion. Seurat was able to make this image come alive. He also used light to make the image bright, and casted shadows among the figures.
