Georges Seurat (French, 1859–1891), Study for "Models" , 1886–87.
The poetic drawing in The Met collection that we have reproduced for our print is evidence of Seurat's mastery of Conté crayon. This was a medium that allowed him to achieve rich velvety textures and softly blurred contours, for which he became well known. The stiff, almost awkward pose of the model clearly identifies the drawing as a preparatory study for a figure in Seurat's famous painting Models (Poseuses) in the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia. Following Seurat's death, this framed drawing remained in the collection of his artist friend Maximilien Luce, who used it as a still-life element in a portrait of the famous art critic and collector Félix Féneon.
