The CAP is closed until further notice; however, you can continue to use our online portrait search below. Please continue to check back frequently for updates.
The Catalog of American Portraits (CAP) is a national portrait archive maintaining information and images for more than 200,000 American portraits in public and private collections throughout the United States and abroad. Nearly 100,000 CAP portrait records have been digitized and are searchable below. A small number of portrait records are accompanied by images. Please note that these images are for study purposes only, and any requests for reproductions must be directed to portrait owners. Last-known owners, if any, are specified within the portrait records. Private collections are kept confidential when requested by the owner.
