signature and date: lower left: "H. T. See / 1901"
Although President McKinley was photographed many times during his political career, his likeness was seldom painted from life. This portrait was painted in January 1901, at the end of his first term in office, and only a few months before his death.
Gift of George A. Zabriskie
