Herbert E. Abrams (March 20, 1921 – August 29, 2003)was an American artist. He was one of the leading portrait artists of his era known for his style of traditional realism. His works included the official White House portraits of former presidents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush. During his prolific career, he painted more than 400 portraits, including those of General William Westmoreland, playwright Arthur Miller and astronaut Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin Jr.[1][2]

Other portraits by Abrams are displayed at the Capitol (former Sen. Howard H. Baker ), the Treasury Department (former Treasury Secretary Donald T. Regan), the National Portrait Gallery (Miller) in Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point (Westmoreland and Aldrin).

Abrams was born in Greenfield, MA as the 9th child in a family of 10. His parents were first-generation immigrants from Germany.[2] His early childhood was spent on a farm, but by his high school years the family was living in Hartford, Connecticut, where Abrams attended Hartford High School.[1] He credited the teachers there with persuading him to focus on school and continue with his education. After highs school he attended Norwich Art School (1939–1940), and Pratt Institute.[2][3]

In 1942 he was drafted into the army and became a camouflage technician. In this position he re-designed the U.S. aircraft insignia,[2] adding the tabs on the sides of the circle to make it more distinctive at higher speeds. He then was trained as a pilot and became an advanced flight instructor. He was a Second Lieutenant.

Official White House portrait of Jimmy Carter (1983) by Abrams.

After WWII, Abrams returned to The Pratt Institute and graduated with honors in 1946. He then attended the Art Students League of New York from 1948–1953, studying with Frank Vincent DuMond.
