Fact of the day
US President Dwight Eisenhower began to show interested in painting before coming to the Oval office. He claimed that it was the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill who influenced on his decision to take up the brush. Despite the fact that the 34th President of the United States executed 250 paintings during his life, he never took them seriously. When journalist Richard Cohen asked him about symbolism of one of his paintings, Eisenhower said, "Let's be honest, Cohen. This shit would have been burned a long time ago if I weren't the President of the United States."
