White House copy of the painting Kloss, William, et al. Art in the White House: A Nation's Pride. Washington, D.C.: The White House Historical Association, 2008:

"This portrait, together with Stuart's 1818 likeness of Louisa's husband, John Quincy Adams, descended in the family to a great-great-grandson, who presented both of the works to the White House. . . .

"Louisa Adams was about 50 when this incisive head was painted. The rest of her long life was divided between Quincy, Massachusetts, and Washington . . . Stuart's portrait is definitive in simultaneously presenting "the Madam" of Henry Adams' childish memory--'a little more remote than the President, but more decorative . . . her delicate face under . . . very becoming caps'--as well as the image he later knew to be as true, of a woman whose interior life was 'one of severe stress and little pure satisfaction.'"
