Seurat and La Grande Jatte: Connecting the Dots

Seurat and La Grande Jatte: Connecting the Dots Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A Sunday on La Grande Jatte--1884 continues to fascinate art lovers more than a century after Georges Seurat painted and first displayed it--so much so that is alone will form the basis of an entire exhibition 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 Seurat's 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.
