    "The Man With a Message to the World"

    Frank O. Salisbury: Original Pen and Ink Sketch of President Roosevelt, Signed and Dated.
    -April 1939. No place. One page. 7" x 5.75", sketchbook leaf.
    -Very fine condition.

    This sketch is very close in likeness to Salisbury's "official" White House portrait of FDR. To the right of the hand-drawn portrait, he signed "Frank O. Salisbury/ April 1939," and below the portrait Salisbury writes in his own hand: "President Roosevelt/ The man with a message to the world." A fabulous original Salisbury portrait of FDR. Salisbury's "official" portrait of FDR was originally commissioned by the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, and now hangs in the Entrance Hall at The White House. A rare opportunity to own an original signed sketch from an important portraitist of numerous world leaders.
