Diplomatic Reception Room

This circa 2009 photograph by Peter Vitale depicts the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. The French wallpaper in the Diplomatic Reception Room, depicting scenes of Boston, Niagara Falls, West Point, Natural Bridge, and New York Harbor, was installed under the direction of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in 1961. A circa 1805 painting of George Washington by Gilbert Stuart hangs above the mantel.
