"Large Drawing Roman Landscape Signed Michel-ange Challe Mid 18th Century"
Michel-Ange CHALLE (1718-1778) "Pilgrims before a hermitage in the Roman countryside" French School, Mid-18th century, Circa 1747-1749, Black stone, stump and white chalk on slightly pinkish beige paper, Signed in pen and black ink lower left "MA Challe" On its old 18th century mount lined with blue paper. Dimensions with frame: H.48cm x L.61cm This drawing is part of a series of views drawn by Challe in the Roman countryside during his stay as a resident of the French Academy in Rome from 1742 to 1749. They are all almost the same size, drawn on gray-beige, blue or beige-pink papers like this one. According to the known sheets which are signed and dated, either at the Louvre Museum, the Metropolitan Museum and the National Gallery in Washington, it seems that these landscapes were all created like this one at the end of their Roman stay, because they bear the dates of 1747 or 1748. (See notice of the Galerie Cailleux - Cat. 1991, No. 47 & 48, reproduced here at the end of the detailed photos) Pretty large signed sheet in very good condition.
