Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ portrait of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright goes on view at the National Portrait Gallery and is celebrated at the star-studded American Portrait Gala

The National Portrait Gallery held its second annual American Portrait Gala on November 19 in Washington, DC, a starry event that shined a spotlight on five remarkable Americans: former Secretary of State Dr. Madeleine K. Albright; Taiwanese American medical doctor and HIV/AIDS researcher David D. Ho, M.D.; artistic director, choreographer and dancer Bill T. Jones; film director, producer, writer, and actor Spike Lee; and multi-award-winning actress Rita Moreno.

The gala also marked the gallery’s yearlong installation of original portraits of all five honorees. Albright’s selected portrait was shot in 2005 by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, who attended the event and was photographed with the former secretary of state and actor Robert Redford, who presented Albright with her award.

Albright told The Hollywood Reporter that Timothy’s portrait “evoked her status as the first woman to serve as secretary of state.” (Read more here.)
