Transcript of an unidentified and undated newspaper clipping in the PAFA Archives:

Among the visitors to the Art Club yesterday was C. L. Fussell. Mr. Fussell is one of our veteran artists. He has been painting nearly fifty years. He was a student of the Academy when it was located on Chestnut street. When that building was sold he was among the painters who met in a classroom in the building which stood on the present site of the Broad Street Station, and also of the class which assembled at Juniper and Arch streets. For the past thirty years Mr. Fussell has had a studio in Media, Pa. His pictures sell readily. Mr. Fussellís landscape in the present exhibition has found a purchaser, and his still-life study of a violin and music was sold from the last water-color display at the club. His work is particularly interesting by reason of his highly-detailed technique which contrasts strikingly with the broadly-painted picture[s] on the walls. Recently the artist has been occupied with a winter landscapeĖa view of the recent snowstorm from his studio window. Mr. Fussell has grown gray in the service of art, and with his silvery pate, luxuriant beard, and benign and benevolent expression, he might easily pose for a portrait of St. Nicholas.
