L'Art pour le GOP

July 1956
New Republic;7/23/56, Vol. 135 Issue 4, p7
This article focuses on the mascot for Republican National conventions. It is really a pity that Rodin's three nude gentlemen descending into Hell have been expunged from the program of the Republican National Convention. The fault lies with the newspapers. The party argued that Rodin's dismal shades were not truly representative of Republican Peace, Progress and Prosperity. The levity of the press is deplored in this matter, which has so embarrassed the Republicans that they have pitched out the baby with the bath; discarding not only Rodin, but the whole idea of an artistic cover. Instead, they plan to use a picture, of President Dwight D. Eisenhower; superimposed upon a montage of San Francisco scenes. The Republican decision, it seems smacks of ignominious retreat.
