Van Gogh has company at the Metropolitan Museum of Art –- lots of it. Although the Met is flush with a wonderful drawing survey by Vincent van Gogh, not far from this blockbuster are two other drawing shows, both of which deserve a visit.

"From Clouet to Seurat: French Drawings from The British Museum" is a survey show arranged chronologically. Major works and lesser ones jostle for attention. Some key artists are represented by more than one work; others by only a sketch. But the pleasures are many. And lesser-knowns sometimes contribute surprisingly first-rate performances.
