Large framed ‘crayon portraits’ were made in the 1800s and early 1900s.
These were artistic photographs that resemble a cross between photographs and charcoal or crayon sketches.
They can be monochrome or have charcoal coloring. This portrait is monochrome.
The photographer began the process with a light photograph and then embellished it with chalk and crayons.
Mostly you will find albumen crayon portraits from the late 1800s.
Hang it on your wall as part of a collection of antique art and paintings
