Artist Henry Botkin was the first cousin of composer George Gershwin, and this is Botkin's painting of the composer in 1930. In the late 1920's Gershwin began taking painting lessons from Botkin and became fascinated with painting, even considering giving up music so that he could devote himself completely to painting.
