Now the Obama portrait is in place

By tradition, the former president’s portrait is hung in the entrance hall of the White House. However, not when Donald Trump reigned in the presidential palace. He did not allow Representative Obama’s official portrait to cross the threshold of the White House.

In addition, Trump removed the portraits of Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton from the walls of the foyer.

But under Joe Biden’s presidency, Obama has now finally seen his portrait hung on the parade ground. Biden has also hung back Bush’s and Clinton’s portraits.

Barack Obama, wearing a black suit with a gray tie, is painted against a white background, typical of the artist Robert McCurdy. Former first lady Michelle is pictured by Sharon Sprung in a blue-toned long dress against a much more colorful background.

McCurdy told in an interview for the White House historical association that he started from a photograph of the former president and that his painting took more than a year to complete.

It has not yet been decided when Trump’s portrait will be hung.
