Description

From the moment of their unveiling at the National Portrait Gallery in  early 2018, the portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama have become two  of the most beloved artworks of our time. Kehinde Wiley’s portrait of  President Obama and Amy Sherald’s portrait of the former first lady have  inspired unprecedented responses from the public, and attendance at the  museum has more than doubled as visitors travel from near and far to  view these larger-than-life paintings. 

Richly illustrated with images of the portraits, exclusive pictures of  the Obamas with the artists during their sittings, and photos of the  historic unveiling ceremony by former White House photographer Pete  Souza, this book offers insight into what these paintings can tell us  about the history of portraiture and American culture.
