Description
This painting is a striking demonstration of Seurat’s pointillist technique. The modulation of light and shadow on the wall is achieved with the use of small dots of pure colour juxtaposed in varying concentrations and intensity. The young model depicted by Seurat was his mistress, Madeleine Knobloch, who bore him two sons. This painting thus takes on a very personal meaning.
