The Making of a Masterpiece: Teddy's Fourth of July
Phase 11

Americans called him “Teddy” or “T.R.,” and even in his day he seemed larger than life. He was an author, a cowboy, a politician, a historian, a war hero, a social reformer – and the 26th President of the United States. Determined, exuberant, strong-willed, and patriotic, Theodore Roosevelt was like no other American president.

As Künstler paints the crowd of people, the viewer gets an idea of the excitement that T.R.’s visit would create.
