‘One Life: Ronald Reagan’ opens at the National Portrait Gallery
In honor of the centennial of Ronald Reagan’s birth, the National Portrait Gallery opens “One Life: Ronald Reagan” on Friday.
The museum’s series of tightly focused “One Life” exhibitions — which have included looks at Elvis Presley, Thomas Paine, Katherine Hepburn and Walt Whitman — aren’t blockbusters; they take up only one room. But they’re a chance to see more facets of a subject than any single portrait allows. “One Life: Ronald Reagan” features a publicity image from the 40th president’s early movie career, a 1985 Andy Warhol portrait (based on an Arrow shirt ad), a cowboy-themed caricature by Patrick Oliphant and video excerpts of his most famous speeches.
