Piano Lesson

Piano lesson with Mrs. Marian Stanley Tucker.   

Upon a solo debut at Carnegie Hall in 1948, The New York Herald Tribune described her as "...quite a pianist in the grand manner... an astonishing technique and tone, and a fine sense of poetry and romance."  

Her home is as fascinating as she is.  Pope John Paul II once sat in an antique armchair she owns, the back of which is in the center of the picture.   

This is the second sketch I've done while waiting on the lessons.  The kids can only handle short bursts, so we're in and out in about 30 minutes.
