Real-world information[edit]

A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte

A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte is an oil on canvas painting by French artist Georges Seurat from circa 1885. It was painted using pointillism, a method by which the artist uses dots to create a blur of colors, and is one of the most well-known examples of its kind.

With age, the yellow colors used by Seurat have faded into browns due to the compound he used, zinc chromate. Due to the fact that this color degrades over time (and is also toxic, carcinogenic, and can result in death with prolonged exposure), it is rarely used in art.
