America's Presidents

America's Presidents

July 1, 2006 – Permanent

Portrait Gallery
8th and F Streets, NW
Washington, DC

Location: 2nd Floor, South

This exhibition lies at the very heart of the Portrait Gallery’s mission to tell the American story through individuals who have shaped the country. America’s Presidents showcases an enhanced and extended display of multiple images of the past 43 presidents of the United States starting with Gilbert Stuart’s “Lansdowne” portrait of George Washington (off-view for conservation) and continuing to George W. Bush. Five presidents are given expanded attention because of their significant impact on the office: George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
