Pastel Drawings

Pastel is an art medium in the form of a stick, often consisting of pure pigment, allowing for a high saturation of color in drawing. First mentioned by Leonardo da Vinci in 1495, pastel artworks enjoy considerable longevity when applied to heavyweight paper and are properly mounted. There are pastel artworks from the 16th century that survive today in the condition close to that in which they were created.
