Beauford, What is the Price of a Ticket?

Mays provides the following information about the painting:
Beauford’s original painting was “Jazz Quartet”. Jimmy Baldwin attributed “Price of a Ticket” to his friend Beauford. Ealy Mays pays tribute by combining title with image.

Setting of Beauford’s original painting was more of a church with a woman a playing a Piano. Here, it is changed from a church to a Jazz lounge in Paris, juxtaposing the individuals and instrument played.
