Posted on Aug 26, 2014

Here’s a 17 year-old Roger Tory Peterson for #TransformationTuesday with this photo taken during his first job after graduating high school. He painted Asian motifs on lacquered furniture for the Union National Furniture Company until 1926 when he left to pursue art studies in New York City upon the recommendation of his boss and mentor Willem Dieperink von Langereis.
