    Default The obamas Official Portraits Unveiled..... Your Thoughts??

    So, they had a ceremony at the National Portrait Gallery today and the obamas were in attendance as their likenesses were made public.

    Thoughts on the work??

    Maybe someone can link a pic of the new portraits. I'm always bad at finding the correct size/format.

    I like Barack's but I'm so-so on Michelle's. Can you put them in your OP?

    well at least they were painted by African Americans. however, they should have researched that dress more. I thought Gone With the Wind was racist.

    They would probably not be my favorite portrait paintings.

    Michelle Obama is wearing a dress by designer Michelle Smith’s label Milly, and the geometric colors were inspired by Piet Mondrian.

    I thought Gone With the Wind was racist.
    You make a common error. Gone With the Wind isn't racist. It depicts characters in a racist environment.

    Yes I know you're going to need some alone time with the inevitable 3D airbrushed painting of naked trump riding an american eagle in space, you brilliant arbiter of artful taste you.

    I saw an exhibition by the artist who did Obama’s (his name slips my mind and too lazy to google).

    His work is VERY impressive in person. It’s splendor is lost in photos. Definitely worth checking out if he does a show near you.

    I find Michelle’s to be “meh”. But again could be that just looking at a photo and IRL would be different.
