Georges Seurat Sunday Afternoon

This is awesome how this famous scene by Georges Seurat was recreated in a current day photo.




Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, c.1886 - Georges Seurat

  1. Have you ever seen a Georges Seurat original? In any case if you look close the photograph may mimic the Suerat but it is no work of art and not even a particularly good photograph. It diminishes the original artwork and is simply a demonstration in what we can do with technology.

  2. Hi Ann, the photo cannot compare at all to the painting! I just thought it clever that someone tried to replicate it with modern-day people.
