This signed, charcoal on paper, portrait is by Paul Lewis Clemens. Sight size is 16 5/8 x 13 1/8 inches and is presented in a wooden frame. It is identified and titled on a label from James Vigeveno Galleries, Westwood Hills, Los Angeles, California, on the paper backing. A portrait, figure, genre and garden painter, Clemens studied at the University of Wisconsin with Oscar Hagen and the Art Institute of Chicago.
