Illona Royce Smithkin painted this portrait of Ayn Rand in oil in 1965. Later AR had this image reproduced for a fans' poster in 1971. The original oil painting was 17 x 14, while the litho is 22 7/8 by 18 1/8. Whatever anyone thinks of Ayn Rand's personal life, she was admittedly one of the top influences in the capitalistic movement of thinking. She deeply impacted Republican and Libertarian politics with her notable and controversial ideas. In looking at politicians, I'd venture to say that Ronald Reagan found inspiration in her books, such as "Capitalism--The Unknown Ideal" and "Atlas Shrugged." Many proponents of conservatism/OBJECTIVISM have definitley referenced Ayn Rand, including Rush Limbaugh, DENNIS MILLER, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, and earlier William F. Buckley to mention a few.
