This portrait of Fredrick Layton was painted by artist George Henry Yewell in 1888. It is a portrait of Fredrick Layton sitting on a chair with a cane in his hand. He has a silver beard with short silver hair. He is dressed up in a nice suit with a pocket on the outside. Frederick Layton bought about 200 works of art to start an art gallery that became the Milwaukee Art Museum.
I chose this art work because I like drawing portraits of people and this was one of my favorite portraits. But I also like how much detail the original artist put into the painting.
