    George H. W. Bush: Oil on Canvas Study for the Official White House Portrait. 20" x 25" painting depicting President George Herbert Walker Bush holding a document, alongside a chair and globe. Hanging on the back wall is George P. A. Healy's 1868 portrait of Lincoln conferring with his generals aboard the "River Queen" on March 28, 1865 (titled "The Peacemakers"). Boldly signed by the artist ("Abrams") in the lower left corner. Herbert E. Abrams painted the official White House portrait of President Bush, Sr. in 1994. This is his preliminary study for that work. Frame measures 26" x 31". A truly fine work depicting one of our most qualified Presidents.
