Portrait of John Glenn now on view

In memory of the life and accomplishments of John Glenn, the National Portrait Gallery has put on view one of our eight pieces depicting the American icon. View Glenn's portrait on the first floor of the museum in the "In Memoriam" space.

The 1988 portrait by Henry C. Casselli captures Glenn in a moment of reflection just prior to disembarking on the Discovery mission that, at the age of 77, made him the oldest astronaut to reach space. As a distinguished military pilot, the first American to enter orbit, a successful businessman and a respected Ohio senator, Glenn leaves behind a lasting impact on the country.
