    I found this at a garage sale the other day. Its a large what looks like drawing and then finished with chalk. I have never come across a picture like this and was wondering what kind of technique this is done in, time period of the drawing and if anyone knows who it is. Thanks

      This style is often seen with enlarged photographs in the late 19th century. Often details were lost when photos were copied or enlarged and artists would touch up details with black or crayon colors.

      Typical size on these copy photos is 16 " X 20".
