Kesslere was a graduate of Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York, and one of the last students of William Merritt Chase. After graduation, he opened a portrait studio in Syracuse, practicing photography as well as painting, including the collaboration on several mural projects. Asked to become an art editor for the periodical The Debutante, he moved to New York in 1921, closing the Syracuse studio in 1922. By the time The Debutante folded, his reputation as a talented photographer had been established, winning him a large clientele in the city.
In 1923, Kesslere created a series of paintings and pastels, depicting draped nude girls, running in the open air. These works led to his theatrical photography, and he became one of the best bust format photographers of the late 1920s and 1930s. For his portraiture he was awarded recognition by the British Royal Academy of Photography, and on March 26, 1935, Kesslere exhibited 500 of his photographs, paintings, drawings, and etchings in the Patricia Lounge of Loew’s Ziegfeld Theater.

Charles Joly, dit Montlevault fut redecouvert et reconnu en France grace a une retrospective de ses oeuvres lors de l’exposition au Salon d’Automne de la meme annee, Eleve a l’Ecole des Beaux Arts de Lyon il devient commis en soierie pour la maison Arles-Dufour, profession qui l’amene vers des nombreux voyages. Peintre de paysages, il s’inspire de ses sejours en Afrique du Nord, au Moyen Orient mais aussi en France et aux Pays-Bas. Il peint de nombreux panneaux dans les auberges et cafes Lyonnais qu’il frequentait, decorant notamment l’Hotel de la Bombarde (Quartier St Jean), le Cafe Hugon et la Salle de l’Academis du XIXeme siecle (l’actuelle Westminster Bank). Reconnu par ses contemporains, notamment les peintres Jaques Martin et Adolphe Appian, pour ses toils auc couleurs chaudes et aux sujets exotiques, son Oeuvre de paysagiste s’attache aussi a Lyon et a sa region. La touche de Montlevault, souvent rapprochee de celle de Courbet, temoigne de l’emotion de ce peintre devant la Nature, emotion qu’il figea avec talent dans la couleur et la matiere.
Au contraire des autres artists qui semblent avoir interprétez l’Orient d’après les images qui circulaient, c’est grâce à ses fonctions commerciales dans la soierie que Charles Montlevault découvre l’Afrique du Nord et le Proche
Orient.
Il en ramène des motifs d’architecture qu’il réutilise dans plusieurs compositions comme La Grande Place de la mosquée et Port . qui, au gré des campagnes militaires, rend compte de l’architecture par l’intermédiaire de ses lavis et toiles et atteste ainsi d’une étude rigoureuse des monuments algérois.
