Celia Campbell

Artist: Fraser, Charles
Date: 1845

Like her sister Mary, Celia Campbell performed good works. She was co-founder of the House of Rest, a home for orphans too young to be admitted to the Charleston Orphan House. Fraser has shown Celia with her pet dog like the portrait of her brother. However, her portrait is more restful and simple. As in the other two portraits of the Campbell children, the variegated sky is slightly cross-hatched and the figure is vividly stippled.
