Sunday afternoon on the island of la grande jatte with a Cube
Sunday afternoon on the island of la grande jatte with a Cube, by George-Pierre Seurat, is one of those lingering, melancholly pieces that wraps around you and can totally envelop one's thoughts. The detail becomes the art, the art is the detail. Done entirely with dots of paint, this eventually blurs into a relaxing look into a time of tranquillity... And then, there... almost hidden in the center... is a juxtaposition of modernity and function. The Nissan Cube has been interspersed as if to state that its functional beauty should also be enjoying the gently groomed gardens. A brilliant painting which will undoubtably become a timeless classic.
