Clinton’s Blue Dress Blues: Dem President Gets Taste of Subversive Art

Usually the artistic community singles out Christians and conservatives for subversive attacks. This week it was Democrat Bill Clinton who got a taste of an artist’s sting when the artist responsible for the former-president’s portrait for the National Portrait Gallery revealed he slipped in a reminder of Clinton’s sordid affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Painted in 2006, painter Nelson Shanks told the Philadelphia Daily News, “The reality is he’s probably the most famous liar of all time. He and his administration did some very good things, of course, but I could never get this Monica thing completely out of my mind and it is subtly incorporated in the painting.”

He added, “If you look at the left-hand side of it there’s a mantle in the Oval Office and I put a shadow coming into the painting and it does two things.”

According to the artist, the Clintons now want the portrait removed.

The portrait also appears to show Clinton extending his hips towards the dress.
