    Obamas Return to White House for Unveiling of Their Official Portraits – Barack’s Slammed Over Bizarre Background

    Published on

    For the Wednesday release of their official portraits, former president Barack Obama and former first wife Michelle Obama visited the White House one more.

    In his portrait, Barack Obama is shown standing in front of an empty, white background. In her portrait, Michelle is shown seated on a red couch and donning a blue dress.

    Barack was portrayed by artist Robert McCurdy, and Michelle was painted by Sharon Sprung, according to The Associated Press.

    On Twitter, several people are criticizing Barack Obama’s image for having a white background.

    J.J. McCullough, a columnist for the Washington Post, stated that the painting “feels too unambitious for the White House.”

    Former business leaders are typically depicted in presidential portraits standing in a White House environment, such as on the balcony or in the Oval Office.

    Official portraits of presidents like Andrew Johnson and John Adams have plain black backgrounds, but a presidential photo with a white background is unusual.

    Obama joked that McCurdy “talked me out of wearing a tan suit” and refused to fix up his appearance in the portrait.

    He praised Joe Biden, his former vice president, and said that since taking office, Biden has improved the country’s situation.

    A former president is expected to visit the White House as a guest of his successor for the official unveiling of his portrait.

    The Obamas didn’t experience that during the administration of former President Donald Trump.
