Detailed, colorful New York skyline by President Trump debuts at Heritage Auctions
President Donald J. Trump: Very Fine Original Artwork.

DALLAS, TX.- A colorful and finely-executed drawing of the New York City skyline by President Donald Trump makes its auction debut in Heritage Auction's Americana & Political auction Dec. 2 in Dallas. Trump donated the drawing to St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters organization in New York in 2005.

This engaging work is expected to sell for $15,000 or more.

"What makes this sketch stand out from any others previously offered is the precise attention to detail and the color Trump used to enhance the city view," said Tom Slater, Director of Americana at Heritage Auctions. "None of President Trump's drawings with this much detail has ever been offered at auction before."

The artwork itself measures 9" x 11.5" and presents nicely in its original 24" x 20" frame, which includes a color photograph of the President. It is signed boldly with a clearly legible "Donald Trump" signature.

Only two other drawings by President Trump have appeared at auction, the previous examples being minimal and simpler sketches, which lack the multi-color treatment, Slater, said.

The unique drawing further stands out as a piece of Presidential history. Few who have served in that office role have demonstrated artistic talent, save for former Presidents Dwight Eisenhower and George W. Bush. The example offered here offers collectors a rare example to purchase a piece of memorabilia completed prior to the president taking office, Slater said.

Heritage Auctions will offer the very fine original artwork by President Donald J. Trump at public auction of rare Americana memorabilia Dec. 2 in Dallas.
