Tautological Inception

For this assignment, titled Historical Selfies, I wanted to create a reverse of something that politicians do all the time.  They think that by placing themselves in front of historical art or monuments from the past that it will add credibility to what they are saying or doing at the time.  In this famous painting by John Trumbull we have George Washington accepting Commander and Chief in front of an Obama “painting” speaking in front of a painting of George Washington.  I also added the words “America the Free” to speak to the irony of George Washington using an Obama painting to add credibility to his actions here.

For "Historical Selfies"
