    Lyndon B. Johnson: A Beautiful Large Pastel Portrait by Louis Lupas. Although Lupas is famous for his portraits of John F. Kennedy, he also did pastels of many other politicians and statesmen. This one, while undated, probably dates from Johnson's presidency. (Included with the lot is a photocopy of a magazine article depicting the artist with President Johnson, inspecting several of Lupas' portraits of LBJ. The style of the work offered here is very similar to two of the three works in the photo.)

    As with the artist's JFK portraits, this is a very "human" image, which leaves one with the distinct feeling that the artist has captured Johnson the man as well as the public figure. 18" x 23", elegantly custom-framed to 27" x 32½". Also formerly in the collection of Heritage Co-Chairman Jim Halperin, a worthy companion piece to the JFK lot also offered in this auction.
