At least, I'm assuming this without looking up Amy Sherald.

Not a very flattering portrait IMO.

Like president Ritz, I see most of you have no class. You wouldn't know good art, if it bit you in the ass. 03-snooty

It's a fine painting, just doesn't look like Michelle Obama. At least the one of Barack looks like him.

I wouldn't mind her interpretation if it looked anything like Michelle Obama. It's far enough removed for what she really looks like that if a group of people were shown this portrait and had no knowledge of who the subject was supposed to be - I'm betting they wouldn't say "Oh, that's Michelle Obama......

That's nothing. Have them read a copy of Obama's last state of the union address but tell them it's Trump's and they'd all hate it.

I agree, I was just doing my best TulaneFan32 impression.

It just does not look like like her. Maybe this was done from a photograph taken decades ago or something. It looks nothing like the First Lady we had.

I saw this and thought it was a joke.

That's awful.

Barack's is good except it makes him look older.

I'm betting you're going to be pretty good at that.
