(Hi)story of a Painting
Dive into an animated experience, narrated by Speech Debelle, that uncovers the story of the man behind La Grande Jatte, Georges Seurat, and its historic importance.
This painting was revolutionary in many ways - it was made possible thanks to the industrial revolution and was the precursor to what we today call the “pixel.” But it was not always well received.
The VR environment comes to life with imagery illustrating the narrative and gives a sense of scale of the artwork, allowing anyone, from anywhere in the world, to form an intimate bond with La Grande Jatte.
The experience follows Georges’ winding path to success and illustrates how an artist can come from anywhere.
