Samuel Coleridge-Taylor - oil on canvas - 22

This man was a talented musician and composer of mixed race background. He was named after the famous poet and lived from 1875-1912. In my picture I’ve tried to recreate what could have been his workspace and the various still life details allude to aspects of his life.
