Presidential Portraits: Barack Obama, Michelle Obama Paintings Unveiled At National Portrait Gallery : The Two-Way : NPR

Brand new portraits of former president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama — wearing matching calm, strong expressions — were revealed on Monday at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

Kehinde Wiley painted Barack Obama sitting in a chair, elbows in his knees, leaning forward with an intense expression. The background, typical of a Wiley painting, is a riotous pattern of intense greens.

"Pretty sharp," Obama said with a grin.
