Folk Portraits by the People

by James G. Barber, 1993; softcover, 8 x 10 in.; 96 pp., $6.95

Humorous, eye-catching, and illustrated in full color, this book features a selection of fifty-six of the most inventive portraits of the president given to the first family by the nation's citizens. Spanning the administrations from Herbert Hoover to Bill Clinton, the stories behind these gifts reveal the wide variety of unique and highly personal perspectives inspired by the occupants of the Oval Office.

Noble Heritage Noble Heritage
Five Centuries of Portraits from the Hosokawa Family

by Jared Lubarsky (National Portrait Gallery, 1992), softcover, 8 x 11 in.; 112 pp., $19.95

The heads of the Hosokawa family have taken two paths to prominence—in distinguished service to the governments of their time and in their dedication to the great traditions of Japanese art and scholarship. The portraits and decorative objects—including tea bowls, a Noh mask, and armor—included in this catalogue encompass acquisitions from fourteenth-century family leader Hosokawa Yoriari to late-nineteenth-century leader Hosokawa Yoshikuni.
