paper, h 296mm × w 476mm More details

Challe had drawn after antique monuments in Rome while training to be an architect. He drew the Colosseum from many – often original – viewpoints, like this ruined arch, covered in overgrown vegetation. Using a stump, a tightly rolled up cylinder of soft material, he blended the chalk lines to create shadows.
