Description: Charles Kaelin (1858 - 1929), "Wooded Landscape with Stream", Original drawing, pastel on paper, signed, framed. This lovely impressionist pastel drawing captures a peaceful forest stream. Described as an artist whose "love of nature amounted to a passion," Charles Salis Kaelin was one of the earliest American exponents of Divisionism. He studied at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and the Art Student's League in NY. In Cincinnati, his work was frequently displayed at the annual exhibitions of the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Society of Western Artists, and the Duveneck Society of Painters and Sculptors. He also had important one-man exhibitions in Cincinnati (1913, 1920), Saint Louis (1909), and Buffalo (1920). In 1915, he was awarded a silver medal at the Panama-Pacific Exposition for his pastels. Following his move to Rockport, Kaelin's work was exhibited at the Gallery-on-the-Moors in Gloucester, the Boston Art Club, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. He was also a founding member of the Rockport Art Association (1921). In 1930, a year after his death, Kaelin's numerous friends and admirers organized an important memorial exhibition of his work for Traxel's Galleries in Cincinnati. Examples of Charles Kaelin's work can be found in many public and private collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio; the Cincinnati Art Museum; the Cape Ann Art Association, Gloucester; the Rockport Art Association; the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; and ITT Corporation, New York.
