Who is this rather handsome gent? It’s most likely Bob Harrison, the author of at least three portraits of Grandmother in 1941 (whom he asked to model on more than one occasion because, according to grandmother, he repeatedly complimented her on her “beautiful skin”). Both my uncle and mother remember her talking about her friend Bob from when they studied together in college… not only did they take turns modelling; apparently the two had great fun pranking each other, an activity we would today probably call “flirting”. 😉
Side note: Could “Harrison” be Bob Harrison, a popular animal artist from the 80s?
Hmmm…a mystery! Could the artists shown here be the same person?
