Wife of Professor Anton Blake

UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA - Berkeley
This is one
of my early portraits, but I think it holds its interest.
The Blake family donated the state where the president of
the University lives. They were an extremely generous
family. In my portraiture it's important to keep your
interpretations of people to a minimum. You've got to butt
out and let these people express themselves. Otherwise you
will never get a face as pure and touching as Mrs. Anson
Blake's. You can see the purity of that woman's life in this
picture. It's all there; it's all up front about her.
