No Guardian de hoje, Blake Morrison escreve que: Political leaders have always understood the power of portraiture. Holbein’s 1537 Whitehall mural of Henry VIII – richly dressed, broad-shouldered, legs spread wide – exudes authority and virility (even if the king no longer possessed them by then). And Ingres’s 1806 painting of Napoleon, sceptre in hand on the throne, makes the newly crowned emperor look invincible.
Since the early 20th century, photographs of political leaders have largely taken over from paintings.

Imediatamente voltei ao pensamento do futuro retrato presidencial de Cavaco Silva, por definir e uma interessante e pertinente discussao. Cavaco, se quisesse surpreender tudo e todos, no seu espirito pratico, poderia encomendar um retrato fotografico. Eurico Lino do Vale seria, por exemplo, uma escolha obvia e tradicional, mas o rol de nomes poderia ser grande: de Jorge Molder a Augusto Alves da Silva, de Duarte Amaral Netto a Nuno Cera.
