A portrait of the late "Catcher In The Rye" author J.D. Salinger will be installed today at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery.
The portrait, by Robert Vickery, can be viewed by the public starting at 11:30 a.m. today.
In this portrait the author is painted against a metaphorical amber wave of grain, according to a press release from the Smithsonian Institute. The image appeared on the cover of Time magazine in 1961.
