At age 37, Glen Loates was the first Canadian artist to be represented at the White House.In 1982, President Reagan, on behalf of the people of the United States of America, accepted the painting "The Bald Eagle" in The Oval Office.
It all started with Glen's idea to present amagnificent life-sized painting of a bald eagle to the President of the United Statesas a gesture of friendship between the two countries and to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of this bird of prey as America's symbol.
With Glen's determination and persistence, he was able to reach out to the Canadian Prime MinisterPierre Elliott Trudeau. Prime Minister Trudeau was very enthusiastic about the idea and was eager to attend the presentation. Due to his other commitments, Prime Minister Trudeau arranged for Canadian Ambassador Allan Gotlieb to accompany Glen at The White House. Reagan was awestruck when he saw the piece. The framed watercolor painting measured 127 by 152 centimeters, (50 by 60 inches). The watercolor was full of life and extremely detailed.
