Jean-Antoine Watteau ~ Seated Woman ~ As well as his painting skills, Watteau was perhaps one of the most brilliant and innovative draftsmen of the eighteenth century, displaying a fascinating talent with the "trois-crayons" or "three-chalk" technique. His drawings have the rich coloristic effects of painting and his work Seated Woman is a prime example of his mastery of the technique.
