Who’s this? question leads to Adenauer quote

sketch-of-a-man

Sorry if my items are leaning a little heavily on art subjects these days, but that’s the way it has to be, as I rummage through the treasures of the “Ekland Find” of lost Helen Andersen art. Today I was wondering who was the subject of the sketch above, likely made while watching television. I thought perhaps Konrad Adenauer, Former Chancellor of post-war West Germany.

I went to compare images and found this lovely quote.
adenauer-quoteAs much as I like the quote, I’m not sure that it was Adenauer Helen was sketching. Maybe it was Eisenhower. Both were is the news at the time (1960). Or maybe it’s neither one of those. In any case, I like the sketch. It’s full of personality.
