Study for "A Sunday on La Grande Jatte", 1884
La Grande Jatte, an island park in the Seine on the outskirts of Paris , was a favourite place for Sunday afternoon strolls and outdoor recreation. It is here recorded in a sketch made for Seurat’s more formal and intricately planned canvas owned by The Art Institute of Chicago . The sketch combines Impressionist innovations and subject matter with Seurat’s own disciplined method, and catches the atmosphere of a summer afternoon.
