In this FULL VERSION, you will find over 90 drawings by the great Georges Seurat.

Georges-Pierre Seurat was a French Post-Impressionist painter and draftsman. His work altered the direction of modern art by initiating Neo-impressionism, and is one of the icons of 19th century painting.

His drawings were once described as “the most beautiful painter’s drawings in existence”. Georges Seurat’s mysterious and luminous works on paper played a crucial role in his career. Though Seurat is most often remembered as a Neo-Impressionist, the inventor of pointillism, his incomparable drawings are among his–and modernism’s–greatest achievements. Working primarily with conté crayon on paper, Seurat explored the Parisian metropolis and its environs, abstracted figures, spaces, and structures, and dramatized the relationship between light and shadow, creating a distinct body of work that is a touchstone for the art of the twentieth century and today.

Drawing played a crucial role in his art. He left over 500 known sheets (with about 270 dating from his maturity), an extraordinary number for such a short career (he died at the age of 31). Some of these drawings were preparations for his monumental canvases, haloing him to explore light, shadow, pose and relationships of color, but most are independent works. As Emile Verhaeren once said, he was a "technician, risk-taker and inventor".
