Have you ever seen this one in The Art Institute of Chicago? A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte was painted between 1884 and 1886 by Georges Seurat (1859-1891). And I just released a 2-min video about it on my YouTube channel. You can find the link to it in my bio. This painting is one of those works that is so much more impressive in real life than seeing an image of it. It took Seurat three years to complete, as he had to apply millions of individual dots of paint. This technique is called Pointillism or Neo-Impressionism, and Georges Seurat began this new movement. The idea is that the individual colors are not mixed on the canvas on the painter’s palette, but in the eyes of the viewer. That is why Seurat applied millions of separate dots of paint, putting complementary colors next to each other. It was a scientific approach to create more luminous effects. And our brain can easily put those individual dots of paint together to make sense of the painting. I am curious to hear what you think of this masterpiece and the video I uploaded. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #FineArts #ArtoftheDay #GeorgesSeurat #Seurat #FrenchArt #FrenchArtist #FrenchPainter #Pointillism #LaGrandeJatte #Park #Sunday #Afternoon #ArtVideo #ArtTalk #ArtDiscussion #Amuze
