In his work as draughtsman and writer hard to find and in his circumstances largely unknown

“ … Comte Charles Marie de Sarcus, born into one of the most respected families of French high nobility, who got himself because of a handicap, which forced him to walk on crutches (‘béquilles’), as draughtsman and caricaturist the pseudonym Quillenbois, is as writer certainly of secondary bearing. As pupil of Paul Delaroche he works from 1845 and with one interruption – supposedly because of a journey to Italy from which also several genre paintings originate – until 1853 for quite a number of magazines in Paris, supplies caricatures and bandes dessinée full of sarcasm …

As further specialty Quillenbois cultivated the almanac and published illustrated albums … Interesting yet that here, too, … an intermedially working artist from the second row participates in the development of the painter narrative and the painter novel as joint between Balzac’s young painters … and his successors: Like (Henry) Monnier the bourgeois in view of the painter, so Quillenbois … introduce(s) into literature the budding painter from the perspective of the double talent ”

(Angelica Rieger, Alter ego: der Maler als Schatten des Schriftstellers i. d. frz. Erzählliteratur v. d. Romantik bis zum Fin de siècle [2000], pp. 138 f.).

With regard to Rieger’s unsuccessful research in the archives the date of death stated elsewhere without reference as Paris 1867 has to be considered not substantiated.
