My uncle, William Lauritzen, was an incredible artist. He did this portrait of Mark Twain in 1953. I remember seeing Bill's art on American Bandstand when I was growing up. And I also saw his fashion illustration in The New York Times. In this portrait you can see Twain's ironic, humorous and mischievous spirit. It's fitting, and for me, a great honor to place Bill's lifelike Twain here in connection with my book, NOT SINCE MARK TWAIN which is now free on Amazon.com.
