US President, Jimmy Carter (1978)
Size: 28 X 22 inch. In fact, I wanted to send this portrait to the President as my gift on behalf of the people of Tamil Nadu in 1978. I met the officials concerned in the American Consulate with this photo. They were very impressed even with this black&white photograph. (Color photos were not in use at that time) As they were not to accept gifts to send to White House as a rule, they offered to accept the portrait to be installed in the Library. Moreover, they offered to arrange Unveiling Ceremony in which the portrait would be unveiled by the Consulate General. But, I was not interested at that proposal. Because, after the term as the President of US, the portrait will be removed from the wall. This is one of the best portraits by me.
