In parallel with the Museum's Neo-impressionist painting show, the Graphic Arts Gallery's first exhibition will be a selection of drawings by the movement's foremost artists. From Georges Seurat, the movement's pioneer, to its theoretician, Paul Signac, from its first adepts to its final recruits, drawings made with Conté pencil or black ink, on single sheets or in sketchbooks, the selected pieces all shed light on the diversity and originality of Neo-impressionist creativity.
