The portrait of Anton Chekhov graced the cover of the Louisiana State Medical Society Journal. It is the second time such an honor has been bestowed on me, perhaps because there are not too many doctor-artists in Louisiana (who also belong to the State Medical Society). Anton Chekhov wrote timeless short stories and plays about everyday people in his turn of the century Russia. His psychological portraits remain true to life and touching a hundred years later.
The brief biographical sketch appears on the inside of the May-June 2011 addition of the the Louisiana State Medical Society Journal.
