The crayon portrait is by one of Australia's most highly regarded artists, Fred Williams, It is drawn in a most relaxed friendly manner, clearly the two artists knew one another and at this time we know that both James and Williams were in London, Fred Williams as a pupil at the Chelsea Art School.

A lively portrait from the very early days of Williams's remarkable artistic career and in fine original condition.
