Different strokes: George W. Bush might have relied on Google for his paintings

Former president George W. Bush unveiled his personal art collection last week in a special interview on the Today Show, as a means of opening his new exhibit, The Art of Leadership: A Presidents Personal Diplomacy, at the Bush Library. As he told his daughter Jenna Bush Hager during the interview, he drew inspiration for his newfound passion for painting from Winston Churchill, who famously took up the hobby in his later years. However, art critic and filmmaker Greg Allen alleges that Bush drew more from simple Google Image searches for sources for his work. Indeed, as Animal New York points out, the source photos for several of the portraits —  including those for Vladimir Putin, Angela Merkel, and Hamid Karzai — can all be found fairly easily on Google and even Bing, with several popping up on Wikipedia.
