About this Portrait: The medium is Rembrandt soft pastel on black Canson paper and the pastel has been protected with Talens fixative. It is framed in an unpolished, 3 1/2" wide, black stained wood with plexiglass. The surface of the plexiglass is set off about 3/8" from the surface of the drawing, guaranteeing that pastel does not rub off onto the plexiglass. Susanna is from a series of pastel portraits that Newberry is making of friends who live on Rhodes.
