Title: Oil Portrait of Barbara Pierce Bush
Description: In 1992, the White House marked the 200th anniversary of the laying of its cornerstone. Barbara Bush was integral to the bicentennial celebrations, which included the creation of the White House Visitor’s Center, the publication of several books on the White House, and a series of lectures on White House history. The Bushes buried a time capsule at the southwest corner of the White House on October 13, 1992, exactly two hundred years after the White House cornerstone was laid.
