George Washington Carver and Booker T. Washington in Carver’s Laboratory

Oil on canvas painting of George Washington Carver and Booker T. Washington. Carver wears a white apron over a black suit and holds test tubes in both hands. Washington stands behind Carver to the right, dressed in a gray suit and looking down at Carver’s hands. A table laden with bottles, test tubes, peanuts, sweet potatoes, and a lamp appears in the lower foreground next to a plant, possibly cotton. A tall bookshelf with several books appears in the background.
