A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte was painted by Georges Seurat in 1884 using

 the pointillist technique.   Seurat painted A Sunday Afternoon between May 1884 and May 1886, focusing

meticulously on the landscape of the park.   He reworked the original and completed multiple

 preliminary drawings and oil sketches.   He sat in the park sketching of the various figures in order to

 perfect their form.   He concentrated on issues of color, light, and form.   The painting is a very large

 canvas (121.25 x 81.7  in).   Seurat painted the La Grande Jatte in three distinct stages.   In the first stage,

 Seurat used dull earth pigments such as burnt sienna.   In the second stage in 1885 and 1886, Seurat

 dispensed with the earth pigments and also limited the number of individual pigments in his paints.

   This change in Seurat's palette was due to his application of the advanced color theories of his time.

   His intention was to paint small dots or strokes of pure color which would then mix on the retina of

 the beholder to achieve the desired color impression instead of the usual practice of mixing individual

 pigments.   In the third stage during 1888-89 Seurat added the colored borders to his composition.

  Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte was purchased on the advice of the Art Institute of

 Chicago's curatorial staff in 1924 and has been a fixture which patrons come from worldwide to see.
