Una Domenica pomeriggio alla Grande Jatte

A Sunday on la Grande Jatte

A Sunday afternoon on the island of Grande-Jatte in some respects can be considered a work belonging to Impressionism because of the use of pure colours, used with the purpose of giving a greater brightness to the painting. Unlike some painters like Monet and Renoir, who gave quick brush strokes (as commas), Seurat introduces a revolutionary technique: pointillism.

The work is dated 1884-1885 and is exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois, USA. A Sunday afternoon on the island of Grande-Jatte in some respects can be considered a work belonging to Impressionism because of the use of pure colours, used with the purpose of giving a greater brightness to the painting. Unlike some painters like Monet and Renoir, who gave quick brush strokes (as commas), Seurat introduces a revolutionary technique: pointillism. He prefers to give small touches of colours spaced out from each other (point-like), which from a distance deceive the eye and create a uniform and homogeneous colour on the canvas. About forty people were painted, a quiet crowd, which performs different activities: those who fish, those who rest, those who walk, those who dedicate themselves to play and those who read; the bodies are represented with a volume of their own, but which does not correspond to a mass. The depth of the painting is rendered by the shadow area in the foreground which deceives the eye, it digs into the painting and then reaches the background area which is very bright. Seurat, in "A Sunday afternoon at the Grande-Jatte", appropriates impressionism and transforms it into a scientific key, taking particular care of the geometry: the painter creates a harmony among the different lines and he is inspired by the geometric solids for reproduction of the characters. Despite the variety of poses and the brightness of the painting, the characters seem to be immersed in a still atmosphere in which there is no definite time.
