HYDE PARK, N.Y. -- The art a person collects can tell a lot about their personalities, and that's just what the current exhibit at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, reveals through a select collection of Franklin D. Roosevelt pieces, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

The exhibit, “The Roosevelts’ Art: Personal Stories,” featuring 22 pieces of artworks, including gifts and photographs from the times, offers Roosevelt fans and history buffs a look at their personal collection, said the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Pieces included in the collection include a work Roosevelt commissioned from artist Bernard Finegan Gribble of the surrender of the German fleet at Scapa Flow, Scotland. And on a different tone, there is also a portrait of Eleanor Roosevelt, commissioned by their son Elliott. The exhibit runs through April 30. The museum is at 4079 Route 9, added the Poughkeepsie Journal.
