Mr Reagan is known for two things; he was a movie actor and he was the president of the United States of America. This portrait of Mr Reagan has been digitally restored by Peter Weis and it shows Mr Reagan in a way that refers to both careers. It is also a picture that is likely to appeal to his fan-base.
In the Netherlands we joke about many of our politicians as being world famous in the Netherlands. We can safely say that Mr Reagan is world famous. As this picture is a featured picture candidate, it will be interesting to see what argumentation will be used and compare this with the argumentation used for featured picture candidates of the most senior politicians of other countries.
