Beauford Honored in Portraiture

Over the years, I've had the pleasure of bringing you stories about people who loved Beauford and / or admired his work and who chose to express their feelings by painting a portrait of him. I thought it would be nice to gather images of some of these portraits into a single post and share the links to the original stories.

These are all awesome and long overdue! I am looking for the perfect frame for my print of Beauford Delaney, as well as looking forward to the opportunity to see his works in person.
