Artist William H. Jefferson chose subjects that would depict truly American images. This was born out of his ties to the lives of people like himself who made up small town America, particularly during the time of The Great Depression. For Bill Jefferson, every picture told a story. When discussing his work, he would passionately explain that he wasn't drawing a portrait, he was telling a story about part of that person's life. In November of 2009, The Library of Congress, Washington D.C., added two of William H. Jefferson's drawings to its permanent collection. LIMITED EDITION PRINTS NOW AVAILABLE
