  • Rachel Jackson
    Howard Chandler Christy
    official portrait
    This oil on canvas portrait of Rachel Jackson was painted in 1941 by Howard Chandler Christy after an earlier work by Ralph E. W. Earl. Rachel Jackson was married to President Andrew Jackson, but died suddenly just after his election and before he was inaugurated. Because of this, she never officially held the title of First Lady. The first lady's duties as official White House hostess were undertaken by her niece, Emily Donelson.
