A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte Cross Stitch Pattern - Georges Seurat

This fine-art downloadable cross stitch design was developed from Georges Seurat’s 1884 painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, introducing the art style of Pointillism to the world. It is Seurat’s most famous painting, his “jewel,” and can be seen at the Art Institute of Chicago where it is one of their major attractions.

Seurat was a very serious, disciplined painter and wanted to make a difference in the history of art, and with A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, he certainly did. He is remembered as the pioneer of Pointillism, a Neo-Impressionist technique made up of tiny colorful dots. The painting was purchased in 1924 by the Art Institute of Chicago for an amount that would equal $328,000 in 2013 Dollars. Seurat’s life was cut short by illness, and he died at the young age of 31. One can only wonder what the world has missed by his early death.
