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 a magnificent life-sized painting of a bald eagle to the President of the United States as 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 Minister Pierre 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 watercolour painting measured 127 by 152 centimetres, (50 by 60 inches). The watercolour was full of life and extremely detailed.

Our canvas prints are printed on archival premium canvas using our Giclée process and then meticulously stretched on a wood frame, using 1.5" x 1.5" stretcher bars. This incredible work of art will be delivered to you "ready to hang" with a pre-attached hanging wire, mounting hooks, and nails.

Edge Wrap Options

Choose one of three edge options. A mirrored wrap provides an illusion that the work was painted along the edge of the canvas. The white edge finish offers a more traditional effect, leaving the edge untouched and our black option frames the work well, allowing a strong accent along the piece - almost like a shadow effect.
