      Drawing primarily from the National Portrait Gallery’s collection, Eye to I explores how American artists have portrayed themselves over the past two centuries.

      The AA/PG Library Collections. To support the research of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the National Portrait Gallery and the Archives of American Art, the AA/PG Library collection of , books, exhibition catalogs, catalogues raisonnes, serials and dissertations is concentrated in the area of American art, history, and biography with supportive materials on European art.   The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. unveils its portraits of former President Obama and Michelle Obama.

      National Portrait Gallery senior historian David Ward and director Kim Sajet talk about the plans for the museum as it approached its 50th anniversary. They also discuss the museum's history.   What I loved most about the National Portrait Gallery was the Hall of Presidential portraits which also had a small bio on each President. Everyone was making a B-line to the Obama painting but what I thought was more interesting was the Teddy Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower portraits as well as the Nixon painting.3/5(K).
