A painting of a bearded man with bloodied knees sitting on a tall orange chair on a blue podium. He is gorgeously framed with grand, sweeping curtains in the same shade of blue as the podium. A woman stands at the bottom of the podium looking up at him with a lit candle in her hand. Roughly-sketched text next to her reads, "Francisca Ramirez. La Gracias a sr. de la umildad por averle conce[illegible] su salud. Febrero 21 D 1949.”

About the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art
The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art believes everyone deserves access to art that challenges our understanding of the present and inspires us to create a future that holds space for us all. Located on the campus of one of the most racially diverse universities in the U.S., we strive to create a nourishing environment for those who continue to be neglected by contemporary art museums. As the only art museum in the city of Las Vegas, we commit ourselves to leveling barriers that limit access to the arts. Our collection of artworks offers an opportunity for everyone to develop a deeper knowledge of contemporary art in Southern Nevada. The Barrick Museum is part of the College of Fine Arts at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
