The artist Kara Walker has created an instantly iconic portrait of the recently deceased author Toni Morrison for the cover of The New Yorker magazine. The portrait, shared by the magazine on Instagram and reposted by Walker, features a closeup of Morrison’s head. The artwork is rendered in Walker’s distinctive, high-contrast, cut paper silhouette style, with dramatically swirling hair that curls toward Morrison’s mouth. The artwork will appear on the cover of the magazine’s August 19th issue.
