Georges Seurat -- Un dimanche après-midi à l'Ile de la Grande Jatte (1886)

By Michael J.W. Stickings

In anticipation of summer, here's a lovely (and justifiably famous) painting by the French neo-impressionist/pointillist Georges Seurat. (There are different English versions of the title, which is why I'm going with the original French here.)

You may remember that Cameron admires this painting (fixating on the child in white in the center) during Ferris Bueller's day off in 1986 -- one hundred years after its completion. It's at The Art Institute of Chicago.
