New York portrait artist Stanley Middleton likely based the 1911 portrait of Linn Boyd on a print of the Speaker from the 1840s. This work was among those commissioned to replace fragile works on paper in the House Collection. Middleton was trained at Académie Julien in Paris and had a successful career as a portrait artist.
