Printed Art signed in ink: "Richard Nixon", "Bess Truman" and "Lady Bird Johnson". Color, 7½x8½ overall, image 5¼x5¼ (one surface). The Great Seal of the United States printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Richard NIXON (1913-1994), the 37th President of the United States (1969-1974) wound down the Vietnam War and opened relations with the People's Republic of China. Formerly a Republican Representative and Senator from California and Vice President under Dwight Eisenhower (1953-1961), Nixon resigned the Presidency in 1974 on the eve of a vote of impeachment in the U.S. House. Nixon's writings and speeches in the remaining two decades of his life gradually restored his image as an elder statesman. ELIZABETH "BESS" WALLACE married the future 33rd U.S. President, Harry TRUMAN, in 1919. Mrs. Truman, who generally abstained from comment on public policies, lived longer than any other First Lady, dying in 1982 at the age of 97. Lyndon Johnson, the 36th President, and LADY BIRD JOHNSON had been married for 39 years and 66 days when he died in 1973. On December 22, 2005, Mrs. Johnson celebrated her 93rd birthday, making her the second oldest living wife of a U.S. President. As First Lady, she undertook the Beautification of America Program to clean-up and adorn America's highways and civic area. The Great Seal of the United States was adopted by Congress in 1782. The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the U.S. flag. White signifies purity and innocence; red represents hardiness and valor; blue, the color of the chief (the upper part of the shield), signifies vigilance, perseverance and justice. The shield is placed upon the breast of an American eagle holding in his dexter (right) talon an olive branch and in his sinister (left) a bundle of 13 arrows. A scroll inscribed with the motto "E Pluribus Unum" is in his beak. The motto is Latin for "out of many, one", referring to the unification of the 13 colonies. It was chosen by John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. Three pinhead sized ink spots in blank upper right. Lightly crease at lower right edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
