Sunday in the Park with George
Wonderfully presented look at the creation of art
This article is from 2011.
Sondheim’s musical about the creation of impressionist masterpiece ‘Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte’ focuses on an obsessed Georges Seurat, whose dedication to his work ruins his life. As the painting’s characters all offer perspectives on their inception, the painter becomes more fanatical and the creation of something beautiful quickly turns ugly. Wonderfully presented by the RSAMD’s One Academy, this is a moving and interesting look at the state of art throughout the years.
