President Francis J. Underwood is sitting pretty at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington.

A painting of the fictional U.S. chief executive, as portrayed by Kevin Spacey in Netflix's political drama "House of Cards," was to be unveiled Monday night.

The portrait is a joint project between British artist Jonathan Yeo and the Smithsonian museum, Netflix said. It will be on public display from Wednesday through October. [[369813971,C]]

A Yeo portrait depicting Spacey as Shakespeare's Richard III was part of a retrospective of the artist's work at the National Portrait Gallery in London. 

In a move that the savvy Underwood would appreciate, the Washington unveiling was timed to the series' fourth-season debut on March 4. [[369692581,C]]
