U.S. Senate Leadership Portrait Collection


To honor its past leaders, the United States Senate has established the Senate Leadership Portrait Collection. While the Senate has long honored vice presidents with marble portrait busts in the Capitol, this leadership series is the Senate's first effort to develop a comprehensive portrait collection of majority and minority leaders and presidents pro tempore.

Although several former leaders were already represented by paintings in the U.S. Senate collection, a portrait of Majority Leader Howard Baker, Jr., of Tennessee by artist Herbert Abrams, was the first piece acquired for the newly established Senate Leadership Portrait Collection. To learn more about the collection, read the Senate Leadership Portrait Collection brochure printed in the 112th Congress.
