This portrait of Gladys Myers demonstrates the exquisite delicacy of Larry Day's ability with pencil on paper. Gallery owner, Gladys Myers, is seated in a relaxed manner and looks outward with a pensive expression. The fingertips of her right hand softly touch her leg.

Myers was founder and director of Gallery 1015, which was located in her home at 1015 Greenwood Avenue in Wyncote, Pennsylvania. Myers operated the gallery for almost ten years, from 1958–1967, and she successfully represented a number of the artists whose works are included in Woodmere's permanent collection. The archives and sales records of her gallery are housed in the Archives of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution.
