Collection of the U.S. House of Representatives
The Ohio flag provides a dash of red in the portrait of Financial Services Committee Chairman Mike Oxley. State flags appear in many House paintings. The American flag and Capitol dome, also seen here, appear even more frequently, in close to 50 portraits. In the 21st century, a Representative’s family began to be included in some portraits, usually, as in this painting, in the form of a framed photograph in the background.
