This piece, composed for WRTC 103: Critical Reading and Writing, deconstructs arguments held by critics of Georges Seurat’s impressionist painting "A Sunday Afternoon" by detailing the techniques that the painter used to illustrate the culture of people at the time. Antonacci focuses on the theories and uses of these techniques to argue that modern day critics misunderstand the intentions of the artist and his work.
