Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte // Georges Seurat
Georges Seurat (1859-1891) was a French Post-Impressionist painter and draftsman noted for pioneering both chromoluminarism and pointillism. Utilizing the study of optics and contemporary writing on color theory, Seurat took a more scientific approach to his work and relied on the ability of the viewer's eye and mind to blend individual color spots into a fuller range of tones. When viewed at the proper distance, this effect transforms a field of singular points into a larger cohesive image.
His large-scale work A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte altered the direction of modern art by initiating the Neo-impressionist movement. With this piece, Seurat masterfully displays his ability to intertwine small brushstrokes to achieved a tapestry-like surface of complementary and contrasting hues.
