The White House Historical Association commissioned artist Peter Waddell to make 14 paintings of the White House as it appeared throughout the 19th century. The thoroughly researched and highly detailed paintings took six years to create. The paintings depict the President’s House from construction in 1792 to Theodore Roosevelt’s major renovation in 1902 and include changes to the out buildings and grounds as well as the interior rooms.

Mr. Waddell gave a tour of the paintings on exhibit at the White House Visitor Center through November 28, 2011. The exhibit, “An Artist Visits the White House Past: The Paintings of Peter Waddell,” was organized by the White House Historical Association and the Office of the Curator of the White House in cooperation with the National Park Service. close
