Title: Oil Portrait of George Herbert Walker Bush
Description: In order to better preserve the White House collection, a comprehensive survey of all White House objects, fabrics, and paintings was conducted from 1989-1993. Objects in need of conservation were repaired. President George H. W. Bush had security glass installed in certain windows of the mansion, many of which still had materials used in the 1817 rebuilding. In 1992, the pantry on the first floor was remodeled as a pastry kitchen.
