Black conte crayon with white and green chalk on buff paper

This large and impressive drawing is very representative of Cels’ landscape
studies of the mid 1830’s. The use of black conte crayon with white heightening
employing vigorous parallel strokes suggestive of foliage are hallmarks of his style.

in the Nineteenth century. Works by him are in the Thaw collection as exhibited
at the Morgan Library New York City and the Gere collection as exhibited at the
National Gallery London 1999
