Hillary Rodham Clinton Up Close
Hillary Rodham Clinton is a woman of "firsts". She is a former First Lady of the United States, she is the only First Lady elected to the United States Senate while her husband (Bill Clinton) was still President, and she is the only former First Lady to serve as Secretary of State, which she did in President Barack Obama's first term. In 2008, she became the only former First Lady to run for the presidency of the United States, and she is currently the highly anticipated "candidate to beat" in the upcoming presidential election of 2016.
This portrait of Hillary Rodham Clinton was painted by Ginny Sanford in 2006. This is an "up close" photograph with much of the left and right sides of the painting, with its elaborate gold borders, cropped off to bring out the image of Clinton. If you wish to see a photograph of the full painting, it precedes this one in my gallery and can be accessed by clicking on the above "PREV" (for "Previous"). The painting was commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., where it was photographed.
