This landmark of western art vibrates with innumerable points of brilliant complementary colors which bring the lyricism of 19th century pastimes to life. With brilliant tones, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte portrays the elegant leisure of contemporary Parisians with a strangely moving poetry. The rhythmic repetition of simplified forms and accumulation of mundane observation lend this picture a sense of mystery that belies Seurat's methodical application of millions of tiny dots of pure jewel-like color. A beautiful and timeless treasure of Western art, this superlative project will inspire the admiration of all who see it.
