Ahh the famous trade between president Obama and Britains Prime Minister Cameron….begins here. First British Prime Minister Cameron gives Obama a painting by a well known Pop Artist Ben Eine and a while later President Obama returns the favor by gifting another Pop Art work by Ed Rusha. Who do you like better?
