Chairman Vernon Ehlers continued the Committee on House Administration’s practice of using portrait settings that were not clearly committee spaces. Here, artist Ron Sherr has placed the subject in a room with a fireplace and paneled walls. Ehlers sits in the foreground in a leather chair, the red upholstery of which reinforces the rosy hues found throughout the painting.
