Work Description: 
In this color portrait, Clyfford Still poses on a veranda overlooking a cityscape in New Orleans, Louisiana. Angled to his right, Still turns his head to smile at the camera. He wears brown slacks and a tan suit coat over a white shirt and striped tie. The artist holds a hat and a pair of sunglasses in his left hand. A camera bag rests upon his left shoulder. While a concentration of skyscrapers and other buildings appears in the middleground, the details of the flat, distant city fade into the background of the photograph.
