Michelle Obama’s official portrait is unveiled (INSIDE)

 

Former President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were joined by a who’s who of their administration – and some Hollywood types too – for the official unveiling of their portraits at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.

‘That’s pretty sharp,’ the ex-president said as he and artist Kehinde Wiley pulled the cloth off Obama’s portrait, which showed the Democrat in a tie-less get-up, seated, surrounded by a floral motif.

Michelle Obama’s portrait, created by Amy Sherald, had been unveiled first, and the former president quickly applauded the artist for capturing the ‘hotness of the woman that I love.’
