Now that South Carolina governor Mark Sanford's philandering ways have thrust him into the national spotlight, it's only a matter of time until we meet the woman he's been flying down to Argentina to see. The prospect of a new politically-charged "other woman" being blared across the tabloids reminds us of rising British artist Annie Kevans, whose portraits of presidential mistresses--and one presidential mister--were a hit at this year's Volta New York. (A single buyer snatched up all 11 of J.F.K.'s "girls," we hear.)
If Kevans continues painting political inamoratas we predict a long and prosperous career, considering the sheer number of them--Berlusconi's alone could fill a museum! For a historical perspective, see more works from the artist's "All the Presidents' Girls" series below.
