Bathers at Asnieres original painting Seurat

Original Painting by

George Seurat

The painting, sent to the Salon of 1884 and rejected by the jury, was presented for the first time to the public on the occasion of the Salon des Artistes Indépendants.

The work depicts a group of children, men and women who are enjoying a day of rest in the suburb of the Île-de-France. The scene is inundated with a veiled light, obtained thanks to a particular technique of pointillisme, consisting in the juxtaposition of divided brushstrokes: the neoimpressionist germ is contained in this work.

Pointillism, a kind of mosaic-like painting, in which thousands of dots merge together to form an image. Just like the mosaic, the image is composed as a whole, slowly, as the gaze moves away.

Grande Jatte

Ancora 1

A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte painted in 1884, is one of Georges Seurat's most famous works.

It is a leading example of pointillist technique, executed on a large canvas.

Seurat's composition includes a number of Parisians at a park on the banks of the River Seine.

As in the painting of the Bathers of Asnieres, the technique of pictorial pointillism, is replaced by "mosaic pointillism", to compose the final work, a true masterpiece.
