gay art - edwardian boy in suit - yellow sunset

This calming portrait is a side glance of a young man – perhaps finishing up public school (in England that means a private school) and on his way to Oxford or Cambridge, or Harvard or Princeton.

The mottled yellow background adds an atmosphere of calming to the portrait, as the young man faces away from us, and out toward whatever lies in his future.
