JOHN RAITT and LADY BIRD JOHNSON
Original portrait of Johnson, drawn by John Raitt, signed by both!
Original Art signed: "Lady Bird Johnson", 6x9. Pencil drawing also signed by the artist "Raitt". Born Claudia Alta Taylor, Lady Bird Johnson (1912-2007) received her nickname after the family nursemaid, Alice Tittle, remarked that the baby of Thomas and Minnie Taylor was "as purty as a little lady bird". On Nov. 6, 1934, she married Lyndon Baines Johnson in San Antonio, Texas. Lady Bird was a shrewd businesswoman who parlayed a small inheritance into a multimillion-dollar fortune in addition to raising the couple's two daughters, Lynda Bird and Luci Baines. Both married while their father was President (1963-1969) and Lady Bird was pursuing an active role as First Lady (she is best known for actively promoting national beautification projects). Following her husband's term, the Johnsons returned to their Texas ranch, where LBJ died in 1973 (the couple had been married for 39 years and 66 days at the time of his death). On Dec. 22, 2006, Mrs. Johnson celebrated her 94th birthday; she died in July 2007.Among First Ladies, only Bess Truman, who died at 97 in 1982, has lived longer. While in college in the 1930s, JOHN RAITT began drawing portraits of famous people. He sent his artwork to each subject with a request that it be autographed and returned to him. Tape affixed at corners. Light surface damage at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
