The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery is installing a portrait of “The Catcher in the Rye” author J.D. Salinger, who died Wednesday at age 91.

The museum will hang a portrait by Robert Vickery on Monday in a first-floor gallery designated for remembrance of people who have died recently.

The portrait depicts Mr. Salinger against a metaphorical amber wave of grain. The image appeared on the cover of Time magazine in 1961.
