About this Image
On the 25th anniversary of the Battle of New Orleans, Jackson, some five years removed from his second term of president and about five years before his death in 1845, visited New Orleans. He obliged many artists by sitting for his portrait. Among the finest to be executed at that time was a work by Jacques Amans, a French-trained painter who practiced in New Orleans during the 1830s and 1840s. Amans' painting is rich in details of both physiogamy and surroundings and shows an elderly, though not frail, former president.
