Obamas’ official portraits unveiled

Washington( CNN) Barack and Michelle Obama re-emerged on the public stage Monday in Washington, only this time for an event that has nothing to do with politics.

These are perhaps the most foreseen presidential portrait unveilings to date, due in large-scale component to the artists the Obamas selected. The former chairperson choice Kehinde Wiley, a Yale University-trained painter famous for his depiction of African-Americans posed in the style of Old master paints, regal, formal and filled with pops of colouring.
