Georges Seurat: 'The Seine seen from La Grande Jatte'

Explore the paintings

This study formed the basis for a larger canvas now in the Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts, Brussels.

Painted on a white surface, the colours are particularly light and brilliant. Seurat made several adjustments to the composition: the curve of the island was lowered at the bottom right and traces of a yacht are visible at the left.
