It is a battle between two of America’s most iconic presidents, waged in the most unlikely of places.
President Donald Trump’s artwork will square off with art from America’s 35th president, John F. Kennedy at Heritage Auctions’ Americana & Political Memorabilia on Dec 2.
Potential purchasers can bid now on the Heritage Auctions website.
The opening bid for the sketch of the New York City skyline by President Trump is $7,500.
“Over the years, Mr. Trump has occasionally drawn views of the New York City skyline for donation to worthy charity auctions. The example offered here dates from 2005, and was given to the St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters organization in New York,” the description on the website reads. “The artwork itself measures 9″ x 11.5″, nicely presented in its original 24″ x 20” frame as shown. It is boldly signed with a clearly legible “Donald Trump” signature.”
According to the website, only two other skyline drawn by the president have been sold in the collectors market. One for $29,184 and the other for $16,000.
The Kennedy painting is also signed and was consigned for auction by Victoria Gifford Kennedy, the widow of Robert and Ethel Kennedy’s son Michael.
The painting comes with a letter to Victoria from her mother-in-law.
“I’m delighted that 25 years later you’re still enjoying President Kennedy’s painting which I gave to you and Michael for your wedding.
“I believe it is a scene from the South of France which he gave to Bobby and me for Christmas at Gramma’s in Palm Beach.
“For years it hung in our room at Hickory Hill,” it read.
The next bid for the JFK piece is $44,000.
President Trump’s art is expected to be sold for around $15,000 whereas former President Kennedy’s art is expected to sell for near $50,000.
You can bid for the art of either of these two American heroes and patriots on the Heritage Auction website.
Or you can spend your cash on the artwork of suspected terrorists at a renowned New York City college of criminal justice.
John Jay College has angered both the Pentagon and survivors of victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by showcasing, and helping to facilitate the sale, of artwork by suspected terrorists in Guantanamo Bay.
Which skyline would you choose?
