'Visitors from the East' by Peter Waddell and Welcoming the Japanese to the White House
I was perusing various online sources looking for images of the gifts brought by the Japanese ambassadorial delegation to the Buchanan White House. While I've been unsuccessful thus far I came across this page on the White House Historical Association's web site.
This is a contemporary work by New Zealand-born artist Peter Waddell. Click this link for the picture and an essay by William Seale. Note the list of resources on the right column.
I also recommend clicking this link and listen to a commentary by White House Curator William Allman.
