"Shahn here portrayed Douglass, the elder statesman, fully bearded according to the custom of his day and with the same strong eyes as before; but the hunched shoulders, the detail of the mouth, the slightly receding hair, and the loose collar suggest a man of advancing years. Again, the raw umber title is centered above the portrait.
"Shahn allowed this same drawing to be reproduced for the Nine Drawings Portfolio (see fig. 109). There it is unsigned, unnumbered, and the title, printed in burnt sienna, is a darker shade and nearer to brown than the umber used here."
