Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte || George Seurat

Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, George Seurat (1859-1891)

It is said the Seurat took about two years to finish this work, which is now permanently exhibited in the Art Institute of Chicago. The dotted style is a fresh idea taken out from impressionism and we could only imagine how new this painting may have looked for them back then. It is a painting of various people from different work classes gathering together to view and participate in the town's events.

I see it more than a new inspired idea, maybe a common idea that was just simply mastered. Not for one's own legacy but for one's self expression. Little did Seurat knew he just changed the shift of the world. Changing art. Changing the people who get's inspired by it. Changing the enging of the world.
