Pope John XXIII

Pope John XXIII

11" x 14", pencil on paper

large view

Safran painted Pope John XXIII for the 1962 "Man of the Year" issue of TIME magazine. He was a great admirer of Pope John XXIII and thought the pontiff had a wonderful, expressive face.

This is a finished drawing rather than a study, and was probably executed sometime after the TIME cover was published.
