Robert Weaver III:Kennedy´s Last Chance to be President , Esquire Magazine. April, 1959

In the end of 1958 famous graphic artist Robert Weaver was commissioned by the “Esquire Magazine” to accompany the Senate re-election campaign of John F. Kennedy with his sketch-pad and his pencil. As usual Weaver reworked his hasty, but very decided sketches later in his studio. The striking drawing, showing J.F.K. from behind in his car became the illustrative part of the masthead of the MePri-Site. The handwritten dedication indicates that Weaver later gave this important sketch to his long time agent “Dick” Darwin Bahm, who also acted for the young illustrator Andrew Warhola.
