Benny Andrews 1930 2006 Portrait of the Portrait Painter 1987 oil and graphite on two canvas panels with painted fabric collage

True Believers: Benny Andrews & Deborah Roberts provides a historic and contemporary view of the Black experience in America through the work of two artists from different generations.
