The wife of Senate Majority Leader Joseph Robinson signed this silhouette, cut by artist Betty Kaufman, at the White House on Inauguration Day (March 4, 1933).
Original Art signed: "Grace Robinson/March 4/1933", 3x5 card bearing black, hand-cut silhouette by artist Betty Kaufman. Grace (Lear) Robinson was the wife of Joseph T. Robinson, U. S. Senator from Arkansas. Joseph Robinson, the last US Senator to be elected by the State legislature before the adoption of the 17th Amendment, had been the Democratic Vice-Presidential nominee in 1928, and was Senate Majority Leader during President Franklin Roosevelt's first term. Robinson, a key supporter of the President, would of course have been a welcome guest at the White House on Inauguration Day, March 4, 1933. His sudden death in 1937, coming in the midst of the battle over FDR's proposed expansion of the Supreme Court, was a huge blow to the President. Toned. Edges and corners worn. Adhesive residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
