An Official Presidential Portrait is an oil portrait painted of a President of the United States of America, a tradition that began with Gilbert Stuart's portrait of George Washington and has continued to modern times, although since the adoption of photography as widely used and reliable technology, the official portrait of the President may also be a photograph. Presidents often display the official portraits of Presidents they admire (on loan from the National Portrait Gallery) in the Oval Office or around the White House.
