Published in association with The Art Institute of Chicago The story behind one of the best- known paintings of all time A Sunday on la Grande Jatte,1884 continues to fascinate art lovers over a century since Georges Seurat painted and first displayed it, so much so that it alone will form the basis of an entire exhibit at the world-famous Art Institute of Chicago. Award-winning author Robert Burleigh uses this extraordinary painting to give young children a compelling look at Seurats life and introduce them to the post-impressionist art technique Seurat invented, pointillism, in which a picture is constructed from dots of pure color that blend at a distance into recognizable shapes and various color tones. Part biography, part art appreciation, Seurat and La Grande Jatte tells the story behind the story depicted on the canvas of a busy park on a Sunday afternoon in 1884, and encourages children to discover their own methods of self-expression.
