Prseident Eisenhower painting

President Eisenhower enjoyed oil painting and encouraged the artistically challenged to give paint-by-numbers a try. He presented his staff with paint-by-number sets and invited them to display their masterpieces in the White House. Even J. Edgar Hoover contributed a painting to the “gallery.”
