Sunday in the Park with George was inspired by the French pointillist painter Georges Seurat's painting 'A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.' The story revolves around George, a fictionalised version of Seurat, who immerses himself deeply in painting his masterpiece, and his great-grandson (also named George), a conflicted and cynical contemporary artist.
