In George and Jim Pollard’s second collaborative portrait commission for the Committee on Science, George Brown is shown in a setting that pays homage to both his district and the work of the committee. Brown stands three-quarter length in the foreground, with the mountains of his Southern California home behind him. His support for space exploration is noted by a small rendition of the Milky Way, Saturn, and Earth floating in the upper right corner.
