Portraits of the Presidents: The National Portrait Gallery. Updated Edition.
Written by Frederick S. Voss, Foreword by Martin E. Sullivan
About This Book
One of the most visited galleries of the National Portrait Gallery is “America’s Presidents,” the collection of portraits of the elected leaders of the United States that is at the heart of the Gallery’s mission to tell the American story through the individuals who have shaped it. More than a visual record of the holders of power, these images evoke the careers and legacies of the men they portray.
