The Forgotten Man – by Jon McNaughton

The Forgotten Man (Jon McNaughton)

The Forgotten Man

You can get a print of this for as little as $29 on McNaughton’s website, and/or you can click on the painting on his main page to open up a zoom window that will let you mouse-over different presidents and other elements in his painting to see his motivations for depicting them as he has. The guy put a LOT of work into this; each piece of currency (when moused over) has it’s own remarks. Even Arizona SB1070 can be found crumpled up on the ground beneath the forgotten man’s feet. If you want to hear him discuss the painting, you can see a video HERE. It’s produced to a high standard. Apparently, this painting is controversial. I don’t find it so. What do YOU think?
