Hello September!

Georges Seurat, the inventor of Pointillism, is known for creating lively compositions using short, unmixed, intensely coloured brushstrokes. In this work, you can see farm buildings and houses in the distance through a field of alfalfa, interspersed with red poppies. It is part of the vast plain that separated Paris from Saint-Denis (now the northern suburb of the capital) in the 19th century.

You can get its prints at the Daily Art Store ! Plus we want to share everything you need to know about A Sunday Afternoon at Big Bowl Island. : )
