this issue features portraits of the presidents of the united States as they have involved the white House. artists in every age have preserved the likenesses of great men. Sometimes the result qualifies as fine art, often it is less, as the hundreds of images of George washington and abraham lincoln that emerged from the grassroots in the new nation as parlor decorations and tavern signs. our authors address the early portraiture and also that from our own time: painting on canvas, portrait busts in plaster and marble, cartoon likeness, and also the vivid art of the photographer. in all these mediums the inhabitants of the white House have been portrayed.

Front Cover: Gilbert Stuart’s stately portrait of President George washington was the first portrait hung in the white House. its journey from the dining room to the red room, with a probable interim in the blue room, and at last to the east room took 129 years. on several occasions it has been taken from the white House, notably in august 1814, when Dolley Madison saw to its safety. other absences were for repair. in 2004 the picture was taken down and reframed in a manner to better preserve it; the process was captured in our photograph.
