About this Item

This Russian-born society portraitist was working on a watercolor of Franklin D. Roosevelt at Warm Springs, Georgia, on April 12, 1945, when the president touched a shaking hand to his forehead and complained of a terrible headache before slumping back in his chair, dead of a massive cerebral hemorrhage at age 63; the unfinished portrait is still displayed at the Warm Springs museum. Signed print of Shoumatoff's portrait of Lyndon B. Johnson, 11" X 14", n.p., n.y. Fine. Superb print of this striking half-length watercolor of LBJ in tie and casual coat (showing the presidential seal patch), gazing intently at the viewer. Pencilled artist's signature at lower right and limitation numbering (#43 of 300). Printed signature is dated 1974, which is probably when this signed, limited edition print was produced. LBJ died in 1973 -- but whether Shoumatoff painted this portrait from life shortly before his death -- continuing her macabre track record -- we have not ascertained. Bookseller Inventory # 16025
