Throughout history, artists have painted portraits of their friends, including friends who are often artists themselves. The young man in this portrait, Clarence J. McCarthy, met the artist Eugene Speicher while both were studying at the Albright Art School in their native Buffalo. The two also studied together at New York City’s Art Students League with the influential teacher Robert Henri. Speicher became an important portrait painter, and McCarthy, a significant illustrator.
