Episode Summary

The History of our past presidents through portraits, caricatures and photos, produced by the artists of their day. Go behind the scenes and into the minds of artists as they capture, commemorate, and, at times, condemn our presidents. From Elaine de Kooning’s abstract portraits of John F. Kennedy to Tim Oliphant’s skewering caricatures of the Bushes, we examine the divisive results that occur when art and politics collide.moreless
