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 paintings relationship to its preparatory studies, stressing Seurats 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 Seurats 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 exhibitions cocurators examine the paintings place in the museums 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 Seurats time-altered masterpiece.
