George Seurat "Seated Boy With Straw Hat"

Although this is not a painting, I chose this picture because I enjoy the simplicity of it. The shading really gives a sense of realism to the drawing, outlining the boys figure in depth. I wonder who this child is to him and why he chose to sketch him in this position. This boy is actually a study for the larger painting, "Bathers At Asnieres." He used a conte crayon.
