Edward Sorel: Presidential Portraits

Edward Sorel delivers the goods: caricatures of some Presidents who appear on American currency. That's a thoughtful George Washington from the one, Andrew Jackson from the twenty, and Abraham Lincoln from the five enjoying a jest with Washington. Happy Presidents' Day Weekend!
