Scope and Content: This series contains three portraits of Alvin Shaw. Two are artistic interpretations - one which seems to be a black and white pen sketch, and the other could be done with coloured pencil crayons. The 3rd piece in this series is a b&w photograph. The photograph and the coloured artistic rendering are both head and shoulder shots; the b&w artistic rendering is a full body pose. The ink sketch contains a caption at the bottom reading "I'm retiring as Lord High Cardinal - is the top job open in Rome?".
Arrangement is arbitrary.
