Portrait of Jack Yeats

Claire Marsh

b. 1874 - d. 1924
1918 Oil on canvas

In 'Portrait of Jack Yeats', Yeats sits looking to the right, leaning on his cane, the light falling on his alert face and hands. The portrait is painted freely in close earth tones against an umber background, relieved by the stroke of his white collar.

An oil portrait painting of a man sitting in a chair, with his right hand resting on the chair arm in the left foreground. He has a dark brown suit on, with a lighter brown undercoat and a white collar with a dark tie.
