Georges Seurat La Grande Jatte Poster Framed Print

This poster is of A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, by Georges Seurat. It shows members of each of the social classes participating in various park activities.
Georges-Pierre Seurat (2 December 1859 ¿ 29 March 1891) was a French painter and draftsman. His large work A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, his most famous painting, altered the direction of modern art by initiating Neo-impressionism, and is one of the icons of 19th century painting. During the 19th century, scientist-writers such as Michel Eugène Chevreul, Ogden Rood and David Sutter wrote treatises on color, optical effects and perception. Seurat took to heart the color theorists' notion of a scientific approach to painting. Seurat believed that a painter could use color to create harmony and emotion in art in the same way that a musician uses counterpoint and variation to create harmony in music.
