The Making of a Masterpiece: Teddy's Fourth of July
Phase 6

“What an extraordinary person was Theodore Roosevelt! And how special it is for me to paint him in our hometown of Oyster Bay, New York."
— Mort Künstler


When working on a painting, it is not unusual for Künstler to do sketches of small details. Here you can see T.R. holding his hat, and details of his suit.
