A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte
(French: Un dimanche après-midi à l'Île de la Grande Jatte)
painted in 1884, is one of Georges Seurat's most famous works.
It is a leading example of pointillist technique, executed on a large canvas.
Seurat's composition includes a number of Parisians a
t a park on the banks of the River Seine.
Inspired by optical effects and perception inherent in the color theories of Michel Eugène Chevreul, Ogden Rood and others, Seurat adapted this scientific research to his painting. Seurat contrasted miniature dots or small brushstrokes of colors that when unified optically in the human eye were perceived as a single shade or hue. He believed that this form of painting, called divisionism at the time but now known as pointillism, would make the colors more brilliant and powerful than standard brushstrokes. The use of dots of almost uniform size came in the second year of his work on the painting, 1885–86.
