Bather, asnieres Post #2

Bathers, Asnieres. By: Georges Seurat. Oil on Canvas 

I chose this because it depicts a natural flow of colors. He uses highlights and shades on the figures that are painted which shows them more realistically to the viewer. It is nice that the painter is able to capture a moment of the working class in the suburban area. It shows vertical axis such as the tall tress and the bridge and horizontal axis such as the river bank, grass and the man lying down. Each figure is painted with such detail and yet flow nicely with the axis.
