Green Room, John F. Kennedy Administration

This 1962 color photograph was taken by National Geographic Society staff for inclusion in the first edition of "The White House, An Historic Guide." A circa 1817 Denière et Matelin gilded bronze mantel clock sits above the fireplace. Above the mantel is David Martin's 1767 portrait of Benjamin Franklin. Hanging on the wall to the left are two portraits by Paul Cézanne, "House on the Marne" (above) and "The Forest" (below).
