Title: Oil Portrait of John Adams
Description: Artist John Trumbull painted this portrait of John Adams while he served as Vice President under George Washington. A strong Federalist and a central figure in the Constitutional Convention, President Adams tried to protect the young nation from the war raging between France and Britain. Adams’ powdered and curled hair was stylish at the time. His big, blue eyes are the focal point of the painting.
