No date, 6" x 8-1/2". Dillard said she did not remember painting this portrait from a photograph, but that she must have, and couldn't tell if she had used oil of gouache (we would have guessed oil). She self-deprecatingly commented that Levi, author of Survival in Auschwitz and The Periodic Table, among others, "had been a great favorite of mine until everybody agreed, when I hypocritically lost interest." Dillard has reportedly stopped writing, dedicated her time to painting instead; for a time prints of her artworks were available at her website, with the proceeds being donated to charity; original artwork by her, however, is scarce in the marketplace. Signed "Annie Dillard" in the lower left corner. About fine. No Binding. Fine. (Inventory #: 032762)
