Jazz By the Boulevard kicks off tonight right next door to the Carter, so this installment of Photo of the Week draws images of artist-musicians from the Laura Gilpin archive in the Carter's photography collection.

Randall Davey (1887-1964) was an American painter who exhibited in the pivotal 1913 Armory Show. A student of Robert Henri and friends with John Sloan, he was also a self-taught cellist. Davey relocated to Santa Fe, where Gilpin took this portrait in 1947.
