"J. Allen St. John taught classes for my grandfather, Frank H. Young, who was the founder of the American Academy of Art in Chicago. While St. John was a life-drawing instructor at the American Academy, he drew a wonderful charcoal portrait of my grandfather. It's probably the most remarkable charcoal portrait I've ever seen, as the original is only about 5"x7" and it currently adorns my office wall. Obviously, some of the wonderful tonality is lost in this shot through the glass, but you get the idea." ~ Gary Young
