About this title


A rare achievement in portrait painting, McClancy amplifies intense facial expression of some of America's most formidable legislators. The power of the paintings paired with a compelling written 'rendering' elevates the purpose and nobility of each subject.

From School Library Journal:

This unusual volume is part political statement, part art book. Self-taught painter McClancy pairs her portraits of current and recent Democratic Party leaders with texts and speeches by her subjects. McClancy's portraits are extreme close-ups, displaying a greater emphasis on capturing character than on artistic breakthrough. Politically, the book pulls no punches; John Kerry's foreword is a frank celebration of the party, and an essay contributed by Peter Frank (senior curator, Riverside Art Museum, CA) calls the current American exercise of democracy "foolish" and "venal," and he states, "Like so many of us, [McClancy] has watched the federal government corrode under the weight of fatuous ideology." Figures included are not surprises—Howard Dean, Al Gore, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, along with 14 other Democratic luminaries. Speech transcripts and thumbnail biographies of each accompany the portraits. Libraries interested in the book's political or artistic content should purchase, with the understanding that it presents a decidedly partisan point of view.—Kathryn Wekselman, MLn, Cincinnati
