‘Palpable Granules of Atmosphere’

georges seurat

“Impressive tonal ranges, velvety-blacks, gossamer veils, crazy all-over scribbles, porous grids, methodical cross hatchings…”

Seurat indeed broke ground in creating movement and deep dimensions within his “painter’s drawings”.  In honor of Monsieur Seurat, a timely exhibit at MOMA of his less remembered conte drawings, and some rare notebook pieces, as well as a nice review in the NYTimes .
