This three-quarter length image of a seated James Monroe was derived from a bust-length portrait that Peale is believed to have painted from a live sitting in 1824 or 1825. This painting's composition and background featuring the US Capitol is strikingly similar to an 1817 portrait of Monroe by Charles Bird King.
