Washington, D.C., artist Robert Hinckley painted Speaker Charles Crisp’s portrait, which was given to the House of Representatives in 1894. Hinckley trained in Paris and studied in the same workshop as John Singer Sargent, who painted the portrait of Crisp’s frequent adversary, Thomas B. Reed. Upon his return to the United States, Hinckley taught at the Corcoran School of Art and became a popular portraitist among the Washington elite.
