The chalk...crayon...portrait is a term that includes both free hand and photographic renderings that were popular from 1860 to the early twentieth century.

The crayon portrait was a weak photographic image that provided the base for extensive handwork by an artist in charcoal or pastel. These were usually done on matte surface paper.

To create such a picture, a photographer printed a light image and then artistically enhanced it using charcoal, paint and crayon. Sometimes the photographer would update the original image or remove flaws.

The combining of crayon and photograph gave birth to a new commercial business in both photography and portraiture that enjoyed great success from roughly 1860 through about 1905, and in some isolated areas until the Great Depression.


The finished piece often gives the appearance of a drawing or painting.
