Artist's Description

This product from our store features the painting ‘A Sunday Afternoon On The Island Of La Grande Jatte’ by French artist Georges-Pierre Seurat (1859-1891)

Seurat devised a technique known as pointillism,where small distinct dots of colour are applied to form an image.He used this technique on this particular painting.It took him over two years to paint and is one of his most famous works.

La Grande Jatte is a real island in France in the river Seine.

For Parisians,Sunday was the day to escape from the heat of the city and head for the shade of the trees and the cool breezes that came off the river.His painting shows many different people relaxing there.Below is a description of some of its various parts:

On the right we see a stylish couple: a woman with an umbrella who has a monkey on a leash and a man in his top hat.

On the left,another woman,also well dressed and extending her fishing pole over the water.There is a man with a black hat and a thin cane sitting down and looking at the river,a man lying down on the grass smoking a pipe and a woman knitting.

A man playing a horn,two soldiers standing at attention,a woman under a parasol in a boat filled with rowers and a little girl dressed in white who stares directly at the viewer of the painting.
