Roosevelt by Robert Oxley

This piece is inspired by the former US president Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919). After refusing to shoot a bear during a Mississippi hunting trip in 1902, Roosevelt was satirised in The Washington Post by the political cartoonist Clifford K. Berryman. Upon seeing the cartoon, a married couple in Brooklyn created a stuffed bear and named it a ‘teddy bear’. Robert adds: “The rest is history!”
