Georges Seurat: The Drawings

This Web exhibition from MoMA accompanies Georges Seurat: The Drawings, currently on view at the Museum, a major show including 4 sketchbooks, around a dozen oil sketches and paintings, and over 120 single sheet drawings. While only a few examples of all these artworks are included at the Web site, the value of the online format is proven with the sketchbooks - it is possible to page through the sketchbooks and look at 9 or 10 selections from each - far more than can be shown at the Museum, where the sketch books are displayed open to only one particular page, at least on any given day. It's also easier to display background information in context on the Web, as evidenced by the lengthy section on conservation, which explains how the handmade paper that Seurat used to draw on was made as well as how the paper affected the look of his drawings.
