“George Griffiths” Added to Mary E. Hutchinson Site

George Griffiths

I’ve recently added a portrait of “George Griffiths” to the Artworks of Mary E. Hutchinson, a digital archiving work-in-progress site.  Hutchinson painted a series of paintings in 1936-37 featuring Griffiths who was described in one news article as a young friend of the artist.  Most likely, Hutchinson encountered Griffiths at the Harlem Community Art Center while working for the New York Federal Art Project.

The location of the portrait is currently unknown, but Hutchinson retained a professionally produced portfolio photograph that documents the painting.

Griffiths is also the subject of “George Sleeping” which is currently featured at http://meh.omeka.net.
