1001 Black Men–#109

This is an older drawing that I did a couple years ago, after a trip to the late great Cody’s bookstore, on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley. I saw a happy looking guy looking at books in the Art History section. The whole time I was browsing in the store, he was smiling to himself and reading through this book on the artist Vermeer. I am a big fan of the Dutch masters, and I wanted to ask him what he liked about this particular artist and his work; but he seemed to be so deeply involved in the book that I decided not to disturb him.
