The Making of a Masterpiece: Teddy's Fourth of July
Phase 12

Known for the historical accuracy of his paintings, Künstler spent many hours consulting historians, period photographs, books, and contemporary accounts. Down to the number of stars in the flags, the artist worked to perfect every detail.

Künstler went to an antique car show at Sagamore Hill in search of an appropriate car for “Teddy’s Fourth of July.”
