In Memoriam: Robin Williams
When: through September 9, 2014
I took a few minutes this week to walk over to the Portrait Gallery and see their tribute to Robin Williams. This is getting to be a habit, to see portraits of recently deceased celebrities. I can only imagine someone else famous will have died by the time they take this portrait down. A gruesome thought, I must watch out for a tendency towards morbidity.
My memories of Robin Williams date back to his days as Mork from Ork, so I was happy to see that this picture dates from that time period as well. Williams was just crazy on that show, much of his dialogue ad-libbed, which must have been a challenge for his co-stars.
A sad loss; we must content ourselves with his body of work from now on.
Verdict: A fine photograph that captures both Williams' madcap antics and the sweet side he brought to many of his performances.
