Raymond A. Simon is a brilliant nationally recognized artist who has works in both the Washington and Lincoln Presidential Libraries. Raymond A. Simon uses art as a medium to tell the inspiring stories of United States Presidents, the United States Military, the majesty of our democracy and historical events in U.S. history.
Simon was commissioned to create “The Awakening – The Best is Yet to Come” to present as a gift to President Trump. The original painting now hangs in President Trump’s residence at Mar-a-Lago. Subsequently, Art 45 LLC was formed to showcase and distribute the artistic brilliance of Raymond A. Simon.
Simon’s meticulous attention to detail, demonstrated by his exhaustive research and his use of symbolism, combined with his artistic genius and innate ability to capture the essence of a person or event results in beautiful works of art that educate as well as offer a stunning addition to any home or office décor. Some of his works have been incorporated into school curriculum and have demonstrated a proven ability to enhance student comprehension of historical events by presenting the subject material in an unforgettable manner.
