Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. [not numbered]
The entries in crayon and chalk drawings are not very numerous, but there are some specimens of careful and excellent work by amateurs. Among the best are the two drawings of the Venus form, after the ancient sculptured models. That by D. Deamant is the softest in tone and the best. The other is also good and is the work of Louis Schultz. [Pp. 75-76; see entry 02580036 for other work noted in this commentary.]
