Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
These illustrated catalogs document major and minor exhibitions, providing detailed discussions of exhibition themes. Additional catalogs, pamphlets, and booklets highlight specific features of the permanent collection such as the NPG's presidential portraits.
The catalogs also document special exhibitions which contain the Gallery's portraits, manuscripts, personal memoranda, and other objects, including items borrowed from private and public collections in the United States and abroad. Exhibitions reflecting such a broad use of materials include "The Black Presence in the Era of the American Revolution, 1770-1800;" "Return to Albion: Americans in England, 1760-1940;" "Abroad in America: Visitors to the New Nation, 1776-1914;" and Portraits from "The Americans: The Democratic Experience."
