According to the Library of Congress and history expert James W. Loewen, there is no known picture of Christopher Columbus ever painted during his lifetime. All pictures currently presented in textbooks are false.

You can hear Mr. Loewen's explanation at 27:45 in the following YouTube video. (The link goes directly to 27:45).

We might be more accurate than Wikipedia by removing the images, or by adding a disclaimer that the images are not accurate.

Have a super day!
