President Lyndon B. Johnson by Arnold Newman (1963)

The photograph named “President Lyndon B. Johnson” was taken by artist Arnold Newman in Washington in 1963. It is a black and white portrait showing the President seated in a stately room, which appears to be in the White House.

In the image, the President is captured seated and looking directly at the camera with a serious expression. He is wearing a dark suit with a tie and a handkerchief in his breast pocket. The room’s classical architecture, including a grand bookshelf behind him and a discernible portion of the U.S. Presidential Seal above, suggests the setting is of significant formality and power, fitting for a Presidential portrait. The composition of the photograph is balanced and conveys a sense of authority and solemnity.
