Bob Willoughby on Exhibit at National Portrait Gallery

We are pleased to announce Bob Willoughby’s inclusion in the “American Cool” exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., up until September 7th. Of his portrait of Billie Holiday, they write: “In this iconic photograph, Holiday emerges as if from black satin, part African mask and part Hollywood diva, dragging her shadow along.”
