Theodore Roosevelt's Lunch
Donated to the Theodore Roosevelt Museum in Buffalo. To be auctioned at the museum on November 20, 2018. Here we see a portrait of President Theodore Roosevelt, through his favorite lunch food (according to his mother was fried chicken with white gravy), showing his glasses, on a oak table, with green velvet drapes and a red oriental rug in the background (as per his own home and the redecoration of the White House dining room done during his administration). Write me if you are interested in the historical research basis for the items in this painting.
11" x 14" x 2" deep, painted all around the sides, oil and gold leaf on canvas
