Plot a big canvas of graphics in another window and monitor?

Is it possible to plot some graphics in Mathematica, but having the graphics in another window?

I am working on a rather big canvas of graphics, which I want to send to another monitor my machine is connected to, so that I can see the details easier, without the code generating the graphics cluttering my eyes.

More over, the graphics cell is restricted to the Mathematica notebook width on my screen. Having the output displayed on an additional monitor solves this.

Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Maybe like so - as a very simple approach:

gr = Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 4 Pi}];
CreateDocument[gr, WindowTitle -> "Graphics only", WindowSize -> All]
