A photo portrait of President-elect Donald J. Trump will go on display at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery on Jan. 13, 2017, and remain on view throughout the presidential inauguration festivities. The photograph, taken in 1989 by photographer Michael O’Brien, shows Trump tossing an apple with his right hand. It was added to the Portrait Gallery’s collection in 2011.

Because of Trump’s prominence in New York real estate, the museum has four works in the collection representing the president-elect.

Throughout his career, O’Brien worked for Esquire, Life, the New York Times Sunday Magazine and National Geographic, among other publications. Well known for his portraiture and documentary photography, he has photographed presidents and personalities from different fields. His work is in the permanent collections of several museums around the country.
