Gerhard Richter Painting: watch the master artist at work
Barkley L. Hendricks is an American painter and photographer best known for his realist and post-modern portraits of people living in urban areas, beginning in the 1960s and 70s and continuing to the present. Family Jules: NNN (No Naked Niggahs) 1974 is one of four paintings that Hendricks made featuring a former student of his at Yale University, George Jules Taylor. In an apparently orientalising interior, he is shown on a luxurious white couch in complete confidence of his nakedness.
