The portrait of Small Business Committee Chairman John LaFalce is based on a photograph from the 1990s, around the time his chairmanship ended. LaFalce’s portrait shows him leaning slightly forward in his chair, smiling at the viewer. The edge of a painting anchors the background of the painting on the left, while the edge of a curtain is visible on the right.
