Jacob Lawrence
A vertical portrait of Jacob Lawrence loosely rendered in paint. Lawrence is depicted as a balding man with brown skin, black hair, and a black mustache, facing the artist directly. The background is mustard yellow with areas of green and black in the bottom left. The mustard yellow is reflected onto the side of the man’s face and highlights of blue and bright red glint from the man’s nose, lips, and cheeks.
