Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani has returned to New York's City Hall for the unveiling of his official portrait.

The painting, which was unveiled Tuesday, will hang outside the Blue Room, where mayors hold press conferences and sign bills.

The portrait joins a collection 44 other New York City mayors in the nearly 200-year-old City Hall.

Giuliani's portrait is the 45th mayor in the collection.

It was painted by Everett Raymond Kinstler and features the former mayor in a pinstripe suit and red tie, with his trademark toothy grin and dimples.

Giuliani was painted during several sittings - a few times in 2006, before his failed bid for the Republican presidential nomination, and again this year.
