Seurat’s Circus Sideshow, running through May 29, 2017 at The Met, displays the excitement around circus sideshows in the nineteenth century.  Georges Seurat’s painting “Circus Sideshow (Parade de cirque)” serves as the central theme, and a number of his conte crayon drawings are featured as well.  The exhibit is supported by work from other artists such as paintings, posters, drawings, journals, and film, all showing their individual take on one of the oldest entertainments.  Scroll through our photos below and be sure to check out this show.  More information can be found here:
