I found the enclosed picture of the Reagans with Prince Charles and Lady Diana in the Yellow Oval Room [actually the West Sitting Hall] and though I’ve searched all the web, I couldn’t know who is the painter of the impressionist beach scene hanging on the wall.
Could you please give me this information?
Update: He got a reply back from Hillary Crehan of the WHHA that…
The painting in the image is entitled: At the Seaside by Edward Potthast. This painting was borrowed from a private collection and is shown hanging in the West Sitting Hall.
Is it a Mary Cassatt?
When I couldn’t find it in any of my books I wondered if it was on loan at the time. Thanks for following up Derek.
