George W. Bush To Put His Paintings On Display Like A Proper Artist

Former President George W. Bush is set to have his first proper gallery show.

The aspiring painter will display his artwork at a special exhibit starting in early April at his presidential library in Dallas, the Dallas Morning News reported Monday.

The exhibit will feature “two dozen never-before-exhibited portraits painted by Bush,” according to the newspaper. So in that case “43,” as he signs his works, probably won’t be exhibiting his animal series or shower self-portraits.

But the skull paintings he’s reportedly been working on would be fair game.
