Sunday Afternoon in the Park of the Island Grand Jatte

  Buy now from allposters.com1886: Art Institute of Chicago

This is one of only seven large pictures executed by Seurat during his short life. He said of modern life that he wanted to decipher it with the feeling of the frieze of the Parthenon, and some of the classical quality of that sculpture is embodied in Seurat's portrayals of the life around him.
