Seurat and the making of La Grande Jatte by Robert L Herbert( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seurat and the Making of "La Grande Jatte" provides an in-depth exploration of one of the world's most renowned paintings, A Sunday on La Grande Jatte - 1884 by Georges Seurat. The catalogue accompanies the first comprehensive exhibition of La Grande Jatte and its many related drawings and oil paintings. Seurat scholar Robert L. Herbert makes new revelations about the painting's relationship to its preparatory studies, stressing Seurat's empirical craftsmanship. He compares La Grande Jatte to works by Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, and Signac, also in the exhibition, and analyzes the ways that twentieth-century critics, including Meyer Schapiro, T.J. Clark, and Linda Nochlin, have viewed the picture. Herbert proposes that the enduring fascination of the famous canvas comes from Seurat's mixture of fashion and irony." "Also giving new perspectives in this book, the noted cultural historian Neil Harris charts how and why La Grande Jatte attained its revered status at the Art Institute of Chicago and throughout the United States. Additionally, the exhibition's cocurators examine the painting's place in the museum's collection. Essays by Art Institute conservators show how Seurat transferred and altered figures from studies to final canvas and elucidate the exact nature of his pigments and brushwork. Color scientist Roy S. Berns traces the efforts to digitally recapture the original hues of Seurat's time-altered masterpiece."--Jacket

Georges Seurat, 1859-1891 : the master of pointillism by Hajo Düchting( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a student at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Seurat read Chevreul's 1839 book on the theory of color and this, along with his own analysis of Delacroix' paintings and the aesthetic observations of scientist Charles Henry, led him to formulate the concept of Divisionism. This was a method of painting around colour contrasts in which shade and tone are built up through dots of paint (pointillism) that emphasise the complex interrelation of light and shadow. The two paintings that reflect Seurat's investigations in this area more than any others, 1884's Bathers at Asnieres and 1886's A Sunday Afternoon at the Ile de La Grande Jatte, are also two of his most famous-the latter is arguably one of the most iconic paintings of the 19th century

Georges Seurat : the drawings by Georges Seurat( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Polish and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Once described as "the most beautiful painter's drawings in existence," Georges Seurat's mysterious and radiant works on paper played a crucial role in his career. Though Seurat is most often remembered as the inventor of pointillism and for paintings like Un Dimanche a la Grande Jatte, his incomparable drawings are among his - and modernism's - greatest achievements. Working primarily with conte crayon on paper, Seurat explored the Parisian metropolis and its environs, abstracted figures, spaces, and structures, and dramatized the relationship between light and shadow, creating a distinct body of work that is a touchstone for art the twentieth century and today." "Accompanying the first exhibition in almost twenty-five years to focus exclusively on Seurat's drawings, this volume surveys the artist's entire oeuvre - from his academic training and the emergence of his unique methods to the studies made for his monumental canvases. Distinguished writers present important new research on Seurat's artistic strategies, materials, and themes."--Jacket

Close-up images of small parts of the works call readers attention to interesting details, like the child in this painting who s looking straight out of the canvas.
