ALBANY - Governor Mario Cuomo's likeness is now enshrined in Albany, nearly 20 years after leaving office.

The former governor's portrait was unveiled at the Hall of Governors Saturday.

His son and current Governor Andrew Cuomo led the ceremony, calling it a fitting birthday present for his father.

Andrew Cuomo joked about how his dad did not want to pose for it.

"Never to be stymied by an obstacle, the Cuomo administration found a way to get the portrait, even without the person knowing," Andrew Cuomo said. "Who said the portrait artist ever really needed to see the person he was painting? That's why God made photographs."

Mario Cuomo was governor from 1983 to 1994. He lost a bid for a fourth term to George Pataki.
