The Making of a Masterpiece: Teddy's Fourth of July
Phase 3

The Moore Building in Oyster Bay housed Teddy Roosevelt’s staff during the summers of his presidency from 1901 to 1909, when nearby Sagamore Hill became the “Summer White House.”

Here you see more developed charcoal sketches. Note that the car is in a different position from previous sketches.
