A Portrait for Sale

Beauford captured the likeness of his friend Richard Gibson in a portrait painted in Paris in 1955:

The painting was hung as part of the exposition of Beauford's works that the Philadelphia Museum of Art held in 2005. As Richard is a native of Philadelphia, he was proud to have his portrait shown during this exhibit.  Click HERE to read more about this exposition.
