Both Auguste and Célestin were also landscape painters. Célestin was the brother with the greatest artistic talent, also known for his paintings of the Campine region. This is the address given in the ABP membership lists (sometimes "Blanckaert"). Also collotype printing at this address. Célestin signed photographs with his diminutive "Stin Blanckart". Boudoir card signed "Gust. & Stin. Blanckart", c. 1909. The partnership was dissolved when Célestin left Hasselt for Brussels in 1909. He was registered at Avenue Louise, 41 in 1910 where he was most likely an operator for "Maison Fabronius" or Gustave Buyle at this address. Célestin moved to Liège in 1921 and operated a portrait studio in Rouen [F], 3, rue Claude-Groulard in 1936. He was deported and perished during the Occupation.
