Production CompanyLinda Goldman
Produced ForSmithsonian Networks
The leaders of all the countries are immortalized in portraits – both official and unofficial. Speaking to us across the centuries, artists’ and cartoonists’ portraits of the American presidents reflect the change in both the presidency itself and feelings about those who occupy the office.
Features interviews with Nelson Shanks, the artist who painted Bill Clinton, and Pat Oliphant, one of America’s most influential political cartoonists.
