Seraut: A Sunday on La Grande Jatte: Art that I Love

A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, 1884: oil on canvas – Permanent installation at Chicago Institute of Art

Georges-Pierre Seurat
(2 December 1859 – 29 March 1891) was a French Post-Impressionist painter and draftsman. This is his most famous example of oil on canvas pointillism which took two years to produced (1884–1886). This particular piece has arguably altered the direction of modern art by initiating Neo-impressionism, and is known as one of the icons of 19th century painting.
