Wyeth / Nixon


Jan. 11, 1972: Andrew Wyeth announces he will paint Nixon's official portrait.
Jan. 12, 1972: The White House repudiates Wyeth's announcement.

Jan. 14, 1972: The Nixon White House says it misspoke itself. Kind of.

In 1981, the White House unveiled a portrait of Nixon by Alexander Clayton, although I'm not able to locate a copy of the image. Clayton's painting was replaced with a 1984 portrait by J. Anthony Wills. Norman Rockwell also painted at least two portraits of Nixon during his campaigns for the presidency.
