STOCKTON — Five paintings from the Haggin Museum will be displayed in the office of U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan in Washington. The museum loaned the paintings to the speaker’s office which will be displayed throughout his term.

The museum loaned the Speaker’s office the following paintings: In the Yosemite Valley by Albert Bierstadt; Cloud Effect, Estes Park, Colorado by Albert Bierstadt; Stagecoach by Edward Lampson Henry; Untitled by William Hart; and Kneedeep in Summer by William Hart. 

Art from the museum has been displayed in Washington in the past. President Ronald Reagan requested to borrow Looking Up the Yosemite Valley by Albert Bierstadt. That painting hung in the Roosevelt Room in the White House throughout his presidency.
