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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
