Note: With regard to the little mystery posed earlier, the reason Adrian Lamb had it so much easier in painting Roosevelt than did Sargent was that he painted from Alexius de Lazlo's portrait done a few months earlier. By the end of his nearly eight years in office, TR was probably getting a little tired of posing for portraits.
