The portrait that marks John Boehner's service as Chairman of the Education and the Workforce Committee places the sitter in relatively simple surroundings. A neutral background frames the figure, and the painting is edged with an American flag on the left and a glass-fronted bookcase on the right. For viewers familiar with the House’s committee offices, such a bookcase would be instantly recognizable. Corridors and meeting rooms in every committee are lined with these sturdy pieces, filled with legal volumes and records of committee actions.
