Portraits of the Presidents The National Portrait Gallery by Frederick S. Voss is a 147-page hardcover published by Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., first published in 2000, this copy published in 2009. There are some impression marks to the dust jacket cover that extends to the book cover. Otherwise, the book is in very good condition.
The most visited gallery of the National Portrait Gallery is the Hall of Presidents, the collection of portraits of America's elected leaders. More than a visual record of holders of power, these images evoke the careers and legacies of the men they portray.
An authoritative, engaging text by Frederick Voss illuminates the pictures, offering a concise history of each President and telling how each portrait came to be made. Inclided in this book are images of every American President, from George Washington, to Elaine de Kooning's John F. Kennedy and Norman Rockwell's Richard Nixon, and concluding with Chuck Close's photographic portrait of Bill Clinton.Library of Congress Catalog Card Number: 2007921609
