Work Description: 
In this black and white portrait, Clyfford Still creates a pastel drawing in the studio within his home at 312 Church Street in New Windsor, Maryland. Photographed at an angle, the artist appears in profile. He wears a painter's smock over his dark clothing, and sports a beard. Standing behind the table that occupies the foreground, Still looks downward and reaches forward to select a pastel crayon from the case before him. He secures the edge of a blank sheet of paper with his left hand. Still's shadow casts against the wall to his left, partially covering a board that features reference photographs of his paintings. A stretched canvas leans against the wall behind Still.
