Library, George W. Bush

This 2007 color photograph showcases the Library, located on the Ground Floor of the White House, after its refurbishment during the administration of President George W. Bush. The red-painted chandelier inspired the 2007 refurbishment of the shelves and fabrics. Created in 1935 during the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Library sometimes serves as a location for televised presidential interviews. The room is furnished in the Federal style with many furniture pieces attributed to Duncan Phyfe. Georgia O'Keeffe's 1930 "Bear Lake, New Mexico," is displayed above the fireplace mantel.
