National Portrait Gallery Image Collection

 
 
 

American National Biography is pleased to partner with Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. The ANB team works in conjunction with curators from the NPG to find portrait illustrations that provide an accurate likeness for the subject, generally at a time when he or she was most prominent. The portraits include a range of forms, from busts to photographs to paintings, all intended to capture the character of the individual and intrigue the viewer.

Currently, the ANB contains over 2,800 illustrations, hundreds of which are drawn from the National Portrait Gallery collection.

Subscribers to the ANB will be able to browse through these images and biographies. Visit the NPG page to view all portraits, or browse the list of the newest portraits available here.
