- The portrait of TR you're referencing is the one by John Singer Sargent.
The original hangs in the White House. The National Portrait Gallery was
allowed to borrow it (and also TR's Nobel Peace Prize Medal, which is also
housed at the White House) while the "Icon" exhibit was in Washington.
Neither piece, however, was allowed to travel with the exhibit.
The remaining schedule for "Theodore Roosevelt: Icon of the American
Century" is as follows:
December 18, 1999 - March 19, 2000
Buffalo & Erie County Historical Society
Buffalo, New York
April 28 - July 9, 2000
New York State Museum
Cultural Education Center
Empire State Plaza
Albany, New York
Even without the portrait and the medal, the exhibit is well worth visiting.
