Presidents Who Hated Their Presidential Portraits

From a Washington Post story by Ronald G. Shafer headlined “The presidents who hated their presidential portraits”:

President Theodore Roosevelt griped that his made him look like “a mewing cat.” President Lyndon B. Johnson called his “the ugliest thing I ever saw.” President Ronald Reagan ordered a do-over.

All of the presidents were complaining about their official White House portraits, which are a long-standing tradition. Or they were until President Donald Trump ended the practice of sitting presidents unveiling the official portraits of their predecessors — nearly uninterrupted for four decades — by not holding a ceremony for former president Barack Obama.
