A Sunday Afternoon...

   A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte is a painting by Georges Seurat.

   Remarkable for:   The large 2 by 3 meter art work was created over a period of two years, using a technique known as pointillism. This means that instead of brush strokes, the artist used miniature dots of colors that, through optical unification, form a single hue in the viewer's eye. He believed that this form of painting would make the colors more brilliant and powerful.
