Georges Seurat's 'Nurse with a Child's Carriage.'
The velvety surface, lustrous black, and rich palette of grays in this drawing are typical of Seurat's art.

Gommar Estienne, the royal binder at Paris, was likely the talent behind this incredible binding dating to ca. 1555. Inside is Plato's 'Opera.'
