A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Georges Seurat – 1844
Isn’t it incredible when an artwork takes on a life of its own?
The vision of one individual has been replicated time and time again as new people come across the work to breathe new life into it. Some interpretations are hilarious, others more reverent, but all have their place.
I’m partial to Lapine and Sondheim’s rich musical interpretation of the painting and the man behind its beauty. But, the fact that so many various portrayals of Seurat’s work even exists speaks volumes.
