A revolutionary new technique, Pointillism, at work in Seurat's most famous painting. It's so ubiquitous now it's not even funny. My art history professor, Albert Boime, dedicates a fascinating chapter to this painting in his book Art and the French Commune. In short, it's not just a picture of an idle bourgeoise Sunday, it's a (immensely eye-pleasing) statement of Seurat's utopian ideals. However, that, too, is open to everyone's individual interpretation.
