Beauford in Color

I found this beautiful COLOR photo of Beauford, taken by Carl Van Vechten on March 18, 1953, while surfing the Web last week:

I then found a second portrait on another Web site (with no attributions mentioned) a few days later:

Van Vechten undoubtedly took these photos on the same day that he took the black and white photo that has graced the side bar of this blog since its inception in November 2009.  He took them only five months before Beauford set sail for Paris on the S. S. Liberté.

Beauford looks quite handsome, doesn't he?
