The White House is gilded enough that Donald Trump may feel quite at home when he gets there. There is gold and filigree and ornate framing of art. The decor wears the mantel of history.
Presidents get to select or influence which art adorns the 132 rooms. That’s where we come in…
Barack and Michelle Obama got to choose 45 paintings, so in the spirit of public service, we wish to offer Donald a few suggestions to jazz things up. How about we lose a few of the old guys peering out of dark backgrounds and scenes from our distant past. How about some automotive art we’ll donate from our gallery!
Let’s start with the Oval Office.
Here it is in 2016…
And now a suggested revitalization of the Oval Office; see how we replace the pix with some classic car art!

This is how John F. Kennedy saw the Red Room at the White House… (that’s Harry Truman’s portrait)
Here is the Red Room after some tasteful picture swapping. Click on image to see close up of “Delahaye Torpedo Roadster” by Michael Brooks.
President-Elect Trump has declared he will change the culture and flavor of political institutions in Washington, DC. We trust these chrome-plated suggestions will prove helpful! Note that all these replacement artworks are available on Automotive-Art.com
