Title: Oil Portrait of Claudia (Lady Bird) Taylor Johnson
Description: Claudia “Lady Bird” Johnson is best known for her efforts to conserve and beautify the environment. Her love of nature and wildflowers led her to create the First Lady’s Committee for a More Beautiful Capitol. She designed the Johnson White House china with a border of wildflowers. The official flower of each state decorates the center of the dessert plates. Under the Mrs. Johnson’s direction, the East Garden was redone with seasonal flowers and named the Jacqueline Kennedy garden.
