  • Oval Office, Biden Administration

    West Wing
    Oval Office
    This photograph of the Oval Office during the Joseph R. Biden administration was taken on June 9, 2021 by Bruce White. Before 1909, the president's office was located in the Executive Mansion. During the William H. Taft administration, the West Wing doubled in size from the 1902 renovation and included a presidential oval office. In 1934, during the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration, the West Wing was expanded and renovated, with the Oval Office relocated to the West Wing’s southeast corner.

    West Garden Room
    West Wing
    The photograph of the West Garden Room was taken by Bruce White on May 24, 2017. The space connects the Executive Residence to the West Colonnade and the Rose Garden. It is filled with greenery and seasonal plants, and the allegorical work "Union" by Italian-born artist Constantino Brumidi hangs on the wall. Brumidi completed "Union" and its companion piece "Liberty" in 1869. President Ulysses S. Grant commissioned the works for display in the renovated Entrance Hall of the White House. Representing the indivisibility of the restored Union after the Civil War, both were mounted on the ceiling after completion. The pieces were removed during the Benjamin Harrison administration and returned to the White House following their rediscovery in 1978.

    South Grounds
    West Colonnade
    This photograph of the West Colonnade and the Rose Garden was taken by Martin Ratigan on July 1, 2021 during the Joseph R. Biden administration. The Rose Garden is made up of colorful annual perennials in addition to the roses it is named after. It is located on the west side of the South Grounds, just outside the Oval Office. It has gone through several incarnations: a vegetable garden in the first part of the 19th century, a “colonial” garden in 1902, and then replaced with a rose garden in 1913. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy wanted to expand the garden for official functions and events. His idea became the Rose Garden, designed by horticulturist, gardener, and close friend of the Kennedys, Rachel Lambert Mellon. The garden was installed the following year, becoming a green theater for official ceremonies and a special place for the first family’s private enjoyment.

Formerly called the East Garden, or the First Lady's Garden, the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden was formally dedicated to Mrs. Kennedy by First Lady Lady Bird Johnson in 1965. The botanical composition of the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden changes with each administration. Where the Rose Garden is centered on roses, the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden is centered on the personal tastes of the current administration.
