PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
A jigsaw puzzle to recreate the enigmatic figures and long shadows in an absorbing detail from ‘A Sunday on La Grande Jatte – 1884’ by French Post-Impressionist painter Georges Seurat (1859-91). Admired as the painter’s greatest work, the original painting was created using the pioneering, pointillist technique to create blocks of colour, as perceived by the viewer, which are formed from tiny dabs and dots of paint. The scene captures the fashionable island La Grande Jatte beside the Seine; sited on the outskirts of Paris, the island was a popular destination for Sunday strolls and bathing, offering a shaded retreat from the city’s heat and was a place to see and be seen. The painting is now in the collection of The Art Institute of Chicago and is one of the Institute’s most popular works. As you piece together the image, enjoy spotting the charming details within the assembled figures, including dogs at play, a pet monkey, a man playing a trumpet and steamboats on the river.
