Quick Reference

A term devised by the Pointillist painter Georges Seurat (1859–91) to describe the small sketches painted in oil on wooden panels he made in preparation for his large exhibition paintings such as the Bathers at Asnières 1883–4 (National Gallery, London). It is derived from croquis and can literally be translated as ‘sketchette’.
