About this artwork

The inscription Yoakum made, “Modle Dont paint,” on this and other drawings refers to his occasional practice of making tracings of his drawings, over which he would apply colors. As Chicago artist Jim Nutt has noted, the two drawings would have very similar linear elements, but the color would vary greatly. Yoakum’s practice of “mass production” was of no consequence to his patrons because each drawing had its own unique qualities.
