The city revealed Mayor Bloomberg's official portrait on Monday, December 30, which depicts him standing in the Bullpen at City Hall.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg will be leaving office shortly, but his image will continue to live on in City Hall.

The mayor’s official portrait was unveiled Monday and now hangs in City Hall outside of the Blue Room, along with all recent official mayoral portraits, according to Bloomberg’s office.

Painted by portrait artist Jon R. Friedman, the painting is oil on canvas and is 50 inches tall by 36 inches wide.

It was created from a photograph taken of the mayor in June of this year, where he is standing in the Bullpen at City Hall.

Though the painting was privately funded and is a gift to the city, it needed approval from the Public Design Commission, a requirement for any artwork adorning city property. Final approval was given on Dec. 9.
