Painting by Samuel Bookatz in Museum

There's an obituary for Samuel Bookatz in today's Washington Post - in our collection is an oil portrait of Ross T. McIntire, Franklin D. Roosevelt's physician, by Samuel Bookatz (1942).

Now that I'm at home, I can post the pictures.

Is there a link to the painting itself?

Yes, we put them up on Flick today. I'll post them here in a minute.
