Casting a long shadow: artist hid Lewinsky dress in Clinton picture

Former US President Bill Clinton looks at portraits of himself and his wife Hillary Clinton at the Smithsonian - Clinton's s portrait now hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DCThe artist who painted ex-president Bill Clinton for America’s National Portrait Gallery included the shadow of a dress in the work, a reference to Clinton’s relationship with Monica Lewinsky, the painter says. Nelson Shanks told the Philadelphia Daily News: “The reality is he’s probably the most famous liar of all time. A shadow beside Clinton, who is pictured standing in front of a hearth, “actually literally represents a shadow from a blue dress that I had on a mannequin, that I had there while I was painting it, but not when he was there,” added Shanks, 77. Clinton, who was president from 1993-2001, would become the first male counterpart to the US head of state and government if his wife Hillary Clinton seeks the US presidency and wins.
