throughout his eight-year term as president of the unites states, george w. bush has forged personal relationships with the world’s foremost international leaders. since completing his presidency, he has established a new found interest in the arts and has taken the opportunity to paint on daily basis. from now until june 3rd, 2014, thirty never-before-exhibited portraits painted by president bush are featured in texas for ‘the art of leadership: a president’s personal diplomacy’, each accompanied by artifacts, photographs, and personal reflections to help illustrate the stories of relationships formed on the world stage. ‘I place a high priority on personal diplomacy. getting to know a fellow world leader’s personality, character, and concerns made it easier to find common ground and deal with contentious issues. that was a lesson i had picked up from dad, who was one of the great practitioners of personal diplomacy.‘ describes bush.

  • A useless president ,even more so as an artist.

    B. Fasihi
  • Eeeeuuww …. like his foreign policy, immature and best viewed from a distance.

    Robert de Vos
  • Better than I expected, but first he should have done the 4,000+ portraits for the widows of the men he sent to Iraq.
