The museum's information page about the painting lists its name simply as Charlie Parker.

Charlie Parker and several other paintings by Beauford were shown in the Whitney Museum of Art's show Blues for Smoke in 2013. Actor Billy Dee Williams purchased this portrait from Beauford during a visit that he and James Baldwin paid to Beauford's studio.
