Additional Information: 

Bill Clinton announced his 1992 presidential campaign in October 1991.  Clinton won the majority of Democratic delegates and announced Al Gore, a junior senator from Tennessee, as his running mate.  Clinton and Gore defeated President George H.W. Bush and Vice President Dan Quayle on November 3, 1992.  The pair took office on January 20, 1993. 

Roy Lichtenstein, a pop artist, was commissioned to create this illustration of the Oval Office as part of the "Artists for Freedom of Expression" project benefiting the Democratic National Committee.  It was also later used in a commemorative inaugural poster.
