George Burroughs Torrey
I have a painting done in 1906(?) at Lake George with an inscription painted in the lower right corner in the painting itself to "mon ami Miss ???" I would like to find additional information about it.

Presidential portrait
I have a catalogue of a portrait exhibition called "Mr. President" held at the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts for the State Fair of Texas in 1956. George B. Torrey's portrait of Theodore Roosevelt was lent by the Union League Club of New York. It shows Theodore as a portly young man in spectacles, almost full-length, leaning forward in a chair. He has an intense gaze, but as his florid tie is slightly askew, one wonders if Torrey had a bit of fun at T. R.'s expense. Historians know that the "Bull Moose" could be overpowering, but this painterly touch helps humanize him. T. R. was clearly too busy regulating America and the world on behalf of muscular Christianity and the strenuous life to bother with trifles like neckties. Thus, Torrey's picture shows his subject's seriousness and boyish impetuousity at the same time. It's interesting that Torrey lived in Hawaii, which McKinley annexed during the Spanish-American War. T. R. helped cause that war as under-secretary of the Navy and later became McKinley's vice-president.

Portrait
I have a very large portrait of a woman done by this artist. I would love to know who she is.
