There is a new virtual exhibition on our site featuring pastel drawings. Charcoal studies and mixed media pieces with work in pastels are also included. Because it’s by medium there’s a large subject range, from finely delineated abstractions such as Hugh Mesibov’s Space Interior #2, 1952, to Katharine McCollum Gallagher’s incredibly delicate Spring Bouquet made when she was in her eighties, to Charles Keller’s highly expressionistic Hanging the Sticks (a North Carolina tobacco barn), 1945.

It’s notable that although many artists tried their hands at pastels, in fact these works generally account for a very small number in the artists’ full body of work. They are in fact scarce.
