Barbara Bush Has George Bush’s Paintings in Her Apartment

In a tour of her West Village townhouse, Vogue reveals that Barbara Bush, daughter of painter and former president George W. Bush, prominently displays her father's work about her home. She explains:

About two years ago, my retired father took up painting. And, to our surprise, he’s an excellent artist. On Valentine’s Day, a very sweet portrait of my cat, Eleanor, arrived, signed with love by my dear dad.

Notice Eleanor Portrait No. 2 behind it. She’s flattered to have so many representations of herself around.

George W. Bush's feline art appears in five of the thirteen photographs of Barbara's apartment, and they skillfully capture the spirit of their subject, former street cat Eleanor. One of the paintings hangs next to portraits of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.
