A painting depicting a smiling President Reagan in blue jeans and cowboy hat astride a white horse was  confiscated  by Russian officials

 

 

 It was a  painting by Louisiana artist George Rodrigue,

 

It  had hung briefly in a private  food restaurant in Moscow .

 

 

"Russians don't understand American art. They just don't know how to read this," said  George Rodrigue. "They don't appreciate that this is an individual's artistic interpretation, something not permitted here."

 

Freedom in art as well as in words should be tolerated
