On Feb. 10, the National Library of Medicine was the scene of a special unveiling ceremony for a portrait of former NLM director Dr. Donald Lindberg and his wife, Mary.

Lindberg retired in 2015 after more than 30 years of service as NLM director. During his tenure, the Lindbergs were a much-admired team, always closely involved with the people and activities of the library.

The painting was created by Virginia artist Bradley Stevens, one of America’s leading realist painters and a noted portraitist. Commissioned and sponsored by the Friends of the NLM, the painting will hang in a prominent location at NLM.
