"Raymond Maxwell" (1986).


Artist George Dureau (b. 1930) is best known for his male figure studies and narrative paintings in oil and charcoal and for his black-and-white photographs. The photographs presented here were included in the Black exhibition held at the Higher Pictures gallery from May 31 through July 13, 2012. That exhibition, Dureau's first solo photographic exhibition in New York City, consisted of fifteen photographs from 1973 through 1986 whose subjects are African-American men from New Orleans, Dureau's home town.
