Paint Like Ike

Dwight D. Eisenhower, "Ike," began painting soon after the end of World War II, as he began his position as President of Columbia University. Eisenhower watched as artist Thomas E Stephens painted a portrait of Ike's wife, Mamie. When it was finished and the two of them left the room, Ike felt inspired to try his hand at painting. He picked up the artist's palette, with its remaining paints, affixed a white dust cloth over a box, and began to reproduce the portrait of Mamie.
